IN-PERSON @ Ball’s Falls Conservation Area 3292 Sixth Avenue Lincoln, ON L0R 1S0


Environmental Management and Ecosystem Restoration in a Changing Climate

Addressing climate change is among the biggest challenges we will face throughout the 21st century. We know this problem exists, and yet there is no agreement neither for its cause nor for its solution. As a result, opportunities have been expanding in environmental fields such as ecology research and reporting, environmental monitoring, pollution prevention and control, brownfields remediation, and regulatory compliance and policy development, to name a few. If you are interested in learning what is being done locally to lessen our impact while restoring the environment, and how to establish a healthy relationship between nature and our industrialized world, then please join us on March 23 at Women IN STEM.


2:00 – 2:30 – Networking and refreshments

2:30 – 3:30 – Insights from Heidi Levitzky and Megan Lalli

3:30 – 4:00 – Networking

Heidi Levitzky, Waste Management Services Advisor, Niagara Region

Heidi Levitzky is an environmental professional who has worked in corporate, education, non-profit and now most recently the government sector as an environmental advocate. In her latest role, Heidi is driving environmental protection – addressing climate change and reducing our carbon footprint as the Niagara Region transitions towards a circular economy. This is in support of achieving net-zero emissions in Canada by 2050. Over her career, Heidi has been a familiar voice in the community collaborating on many youth and adult education STEM projects and biodiversity initiatives. Using a holistic and integrated approach, she teaches future environmental managers at Niagara College by combining her real-world experiences with innovative approaches to solve environmental issues.

With charity and non-profit experience in community-based conservation, wildlife rehabilitation, monitoring, and project management, she has forged her own path through the environmental sector, becoming a dedicated leader committed to teamwork and self-improvement. She is a Certified Ecosystem Restoration Practitioner in-Training, fostering stewardship and connecting and restoring habitat across Niagara in her work with the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority. As a volunteer, she has been able to focus specifically on the restoration of the Twelve Mile Creek watershed (the most significant coldwater system in Niagara!) as a Director at-Large with the Niagara Chapter of Trout Unlimited Canada. She is always looking to build and strengthen relationships and wants to be a bridge across communities and sectors as we work towards restoring the land, protecting biodiversity, and creating a better world for future generations.
