We are all deeply saddened to share the news that one of our heroes and past Board members, Allison Pratley, passed away recently.
Once in a while we have the opportunity to hear from someone who absolutely makes us sit back and take notice when they speak. Allison was one of those people! When we first met her, Allison was a bright light working for the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association, helping that organization galvanize its approach to getting children outdoors. Her passion, dedication and commitment to getting children outside inspired us! Allison paid us the huge compliment of agreeing to join our board, and her insightful work help us put our Get Outside and Play program on the map. She was a young woman with wisdom beyond her years, and her thoughtful and perceptive contributions and passion made her a huge asset to our organization and an absolute joy to work with.
Our thoughts go out to her friends and family. We deeply regret the news of her passing - and we will be forever grateful for her substantial contributions.
Allison, we commit to carrying on your work.The Board of Directors and StaffExecutive Director, Alberta Council for Environmental Education
