The ACTWS Charter Gets a New Lease on Life

Back in 1988, The Wildlife Society presented the then new Alberta Chapter with its official Charter. It proudly hung on the walls of the many Chapter presidents in the years that followed, including Bill Samuel and Margo Pybus. But sometime in the 2000’s the charter went missing. Missing but not forgotten.

Never one to give up on an challenge, Margo took it upon herself to find this missing document that has such an important place in the ACTWS’ history. Of course she was successful. Not in the best of shape in the storage box that was its home for about a decade, Margo had it professionally restored and hermetically sealed in a protective frame. Here she presents it to ACTWS president Everett Hanna, who will pass it along to our new president, Andrea Morehouse for proud display, never to be lost again.
