An active outdoors person, Jean-Michel delights in teaching his two boys about the natural world and the connection we have to the land. Regardless of the career path his kids choose, Jean-Michel’s aims are to help them learn to appreciate the beauty and diversity in nature and to understand the importance of sustainable development.
