Jane Margaret Bowles


Dear Friends, Family, Colleagues, or Students of Jane:

“After a short struggle with a very aggressive cancer, Jane went to sleep for the last time on Saturday, July 27 2013. The molecules that once served as the canvas for an outstanding emergent phenomenon called Jane Margaret Bowles will be returned to nature, the same nature for which Jane spent 60 years of unending passion and commitment, and to which she dedicated her life.” said Andre Lachance, Jane’s husband of 33 years.

Jane was the Chair of the Property Management Committee here at the Thames Talbot Land Trust. “She was a very passionate volunteer and we will miss her dedication to excellence and wonderful sense of humour,” explained Jim Rule, President of the Thames Talbot Land Trust (TTLT). “The Trust was the catalyst for Jane to apply her tremendous qualities and volunteer efforts. What a gift she made to us!”

If you wish to make a donation in Jane’s memory, please contribute to her favourite charity, the Thames Talbot Land Trust, by donating to the London Community Foundation (107641953 RR0001).  You can also make a donation through CanadaHelps (https://www.canadahelps.org/DonationDetails.aspx), select Thames Talbot Land Trust Fund and specify that the gift is intended for the stewardship endowment fund in the memory of Jane Bowles.



TTLT Summer Property Stewards

2013 SS 08 - NW

This summer the TTLT has taken on two Summer Property Stewards Katie Holman and Natalie Westwood through the Canada Summer jobs 2013 Program.  Both Katie and Natalie are recent graduates of Western University with Honors Bachelor of Science degrees in Biology.  They will primarily be working with property manager Al Driedger at the Five Points Forest.  The clearing of hiking trails and removal of buckthorn (Rhamnus), an invasive plant species will be the major goals of their work at this site.  So far, both of them have enjoyed working in the beautiful forest and have cleared larger areas of bucthorn and completed a new trail.  Katie and natalie are also lookingforward to exploring and working at other TTLT properties and have greatly enjoyed the first few weeks of their work with the TTLT.
