- Spearheading an organized approach to Invasive Plants in our area
- Installation of directional signage in Beaver Lodge lands
- Leading intertidal walks and working towards a new Campbell River aquarium
- Guiding history tours of Desolation Sound

Richard Hamilton (Secretary/Treasurer):
Richard’s interest in conservation began as a Boy Scout in southern Illinois. His big concerns then were topsoil erosion and reforestation of “waste areas,” i.e. the remains of strip mines. Also, at that time, he tried to encourage farmers to plant hedgerows instead of fencing and to leave grassy margins between their fields and pastures: greenspace, habitat, and water quality. He is a past president of Greenways and now serves as Secretary/Treasurer.
Bob Dice (Director/Past President):
Bob is a retired forestry engineering technician and is proud to have been a member of the Greenways Board for nearly twenty years. He has participated in various roles and is currently Greenway’s President.
Bob is passionate about creating sustainable communities and believes the enhancement of our local streams is a key indicator on how we are doing in that regard. He is also passionate about creating a sense community through volunteerism. Roads are for cars, trails are for people. Walking, running and cycling on nature trails can shift us into “slow time” - a time for quiet reflection or for conversations of real depth.
The care of our streams and trails through Greenways initiatives has provided Bob with meaningful ways to express his commitment, for that he is grateful to the organization and to it’s amazing Board, staff and volunteers.
