Eric Swanson has a degree in cellular, molecular and microbial biology from the University of Calgary, but changed course to work in conservation and advocacy beginning in 2006. He volunteers with the Alpine Club of Canada (and with Gen Squeeze) and is driven by a desire to leave future generations at least as much as we inherited.
