Eastern Ontario Model Forest General Manager Retires After 17 Years

Brian Barkley recently announced his retirement as General Manager of Eastern Ontario Model Forest (EOMF). He was EOMFs founding and only General Manager since its inception in 1992. Brian is well-respected in both forestry and the model forest community in Canada and abroad. His combination of affability, inspired leadership, skilled management and love of connecting with the forest community resulted in a consistently successful EOMF. His boundless willingness to share EOMF experiences with others through hosting countless international model forest delegations contributed significantly to the development of a number of model forests around the world. On behalf of the entire International Model Forest Network, the IMFN Secretariat would like to express our profound gratitude to Brian for what he has accomplished and for what he has helped us to accomplish. All the best in your future endeavours!
