A force for nature
How committed is Chris Fader to supporting wetland conservation? Not even a hurricane can stop him. It’s this kind of steadfastness that made Fader a joint-recipient of Ducks Unlimited Canada’s (DUC) volunteer of the year award in New Brunswick—an honour he shares with John Johnston of Hanwell.
