Confirmed presentation for Saturday October 21st: “Creating Ambassadors: Expedition Cruising Helps Secure the Future of Sable Island”

Allow us to introduce Cedar Swan, an adventurer and passionate outdoor enthusiast. The CEO of Adventure Canada—as well as an expedition planner, leader, and guide—Cedar’s work engages, entertains, and educates by connecting people to each other and the land through innovative travel experiences. Since 2010, she has been working with Parks Canada to develop a model for sustainable tourism on Sable Island; the resulting expedition cruises have been an acclaimed success. She believes that fostering connections to people and land is critical to the longevity of conservation work, and is dedicated to cultivating meaningful relationships that strengthen our ties to nature and each other. She has grown up surrounded by the world’s foremost adventurers and explorers, and now proudly carries on the work her father started at the helm of Adventure Canada. She is a founding member of Canadian Women for Nature, a fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, a member of the Explorers Club, and on the board of directors for Project North. We can’t wait to hear from Cedar at our conference, where she’ll talk about Creating Ambassadors: Expedition Cruising Helps Secure the Future of Sable Island!
