Ross chose to settle in the Columbia Valley, drawn by the vistas, the wildlife, its history; and the fact that the valley has more kindred spirits per square kilometre than any place he has discovered so far.
Ross is energized by the linkages between people and the environment through time. He has sought to illustrate the human/land connection in his work for national parks and historic sites. He is the founder of the David Thompson Bicentennial initiative that has projects across the continent. A past chair of the Wings Over the Rockies, Ross points to the festival as an example of how an exciting dream has inspired lots of people and rippled into many new initiatives. He was the past chair of Columbia River Greenways Alliance, a spinoff of Wings. Ross enjoys kayaking, canoeing, photography, wildlife watching, and home renovations." string(9) "Presenter" string(80) "https://www.wingsovertherockies.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/macDonald_1-2.jpg"
