Park Staff, Superintendent
While we all admire Brent’s dedication to the Bonnechere family of Parks over a 20-year span, it’s his wry sense of humour that makes him the best of friends.
Brent first came to Bonnechere as an EYC summer student in 1989, laying out canoe and hiking trails, and working on the Bonnechere River between Algonquin Park and Round Lake. He returned in 1993 and stayed until 2007. During that time he was foreman at the Round Lake Ontario Ranger camp, then Assistant Superintendent and finally Acting Superintendent. Brent was involved in various capital projects at Bonnechere Park including bringing electricity to the campground and the construction of four rustic cabins.
He was also on staff when the Park was open over three winter seasons, offering ski trails, a skating rink and roofed accommodation plus camping. Brent has always been a great supporter of the Friends, assisting in many of our initiatives and special events, including the infamous burnt pig roast. Ask him to share that story with you next time you see him!
