Ben Whalen started working with the KWRC in 1995 as a Habitat Technician and worked here for three summers after he received his diploma in Environmental Technology at NBCC Miramichi. After pursuing various contracts and other opportunities in his field, he returned to the KWRC as Project Manager in 2007.
Ben loves the fact that he can work in his field and make a positive difference here in his home town. Ben and his wife, Michelle, raise their two children, and attempt a garden, while living in Sussex. Ben also loves to reap the rewards of his work as an avid angler and can often be found wading down local streams casting a line as often as he can be found measuring their depths and widths.
His familiarity and passion for the Kennebecasis watershed has proven to be an asset for the KWRC and he wants to continue to improve the watershed while also improving local communities.
