Bridget's love for water (fresh and salty) is what first drew her into environment and climate work - and now she has the strengthened resolve and urgency to protect her children. Bridget works with Indigenous communities to protect and uphold Indigenous rights, title, and laws through environmental stewardship. Bridget joined the CCAT board to give her passion a place to land into local action, and to give back to our community in whatever way she can.
