Out on the trails and in the classrooms, Bob Fanning has been a wonderful mentor to young photographers and nature explorers in over forty Focus on Nature school workshops. His ability to connect with the students and help them see their world with new eyes is an inspiration to the other volunteers who work with him.
In addition to being a workshop Lead Instructor, Bob is the current President of the Focus on Nature Board of Directors. In that capacity he has steered the organization to becoming an Ontario Non-profit Corporation and a Registered Charity. His patient determination ensured that this process went as smoothly as possible.
Bob’s cheerful personality and his ability to lead in what can at times be stressful situations has provided an invaluable steady hand to the organization. Thank you, Bob, for all that you have given to the students, the other volunteers and your community!
