Summary: Sue Hemphill's Bio, Environmental Educator Scout Island Nature Centre, Member of the
Horsefly River Roundtable, Director Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society, and Treasurer
Williams Lake Environmental Society
I was born and raised in Detroit Michigan many years ago. I spent summers at my grandparent's
farm exploring all the things I couldn't find in my own backyard. I graduated (1969) from the
University of Michigan with a BS in Science of Education and began teaching in inner city Los
Angeles. I earned a MS in Special Education and kept on teaching, but always dragging my
students outside to look at bugs, plants, dirt, etc. I found a partner, sailed for 5 years and then
homesteaded near Horsefly BC in the middle of a forest. The logging of the forest bothered me
so I went back to university and got a BS and MS in biology (botany is/was my thing), so that I
could work intelligently on environmental issues. I spent 5 years doing botany field work, which
I thoroughly enjoyed, but it kept me away from home too much. Now I focus on getting people
of all ages outdoors exploring, enjoying and learning about nature--while continuing to work on
environmental issues.
