Matt Iles

Matthew brings with him 10 years of experience in wildlife
conservation and ecology, from the mossy valleys of Wales, via the
Amazon Rainforest, to Ontario's Carolinian Forests and remaining
marshlands, to the cedar grove.

Well versed in the bird life of Ontario, he is also in tune with the insects, reptiles, amphibians, and delights in foraging and tracking opportunities wherever they present.  

The Guelph Outdoor School brings to Matthew an opportunity
to turn his scientific background on its head, and use story-telling,
sit-spot, timeless wanderings and natural crafts to engage folks young
and old in how to conserve, tend and engage with the natural world.
Sustainable agriculture, permaculture and community also get him
excited.
