Eric Reder, Manitoba Campaign Director
Eric has worked for the Wilderness Committee since 2003 as a canvasser. Eric is a multi-talented man who has performed successfully as a campaigner, publisher, photographer, director of a national sports organization, carpenter, communications director and coach.

His valuable work experience is complemented by a strong background as an avid and accomplished outdoorsman. First-hand knowledge of many wild spaces has instilled a deep appreciation for their beauty and value, strengthening Eric's resolve to protect them. Eric spent much of his youth in the wilderness east of Lake Winnipeg, starting with his first paddling trip at age four. Since then he has journeyed through much of Canada's wildlands, and many U.S. wilderness areas as well.


Wendy Fisher, Campaign Assistant

Wendy comes from the Bloodvein First Nation, where she lived for most of her life. Since moving to Winnipeg, she has missed walking the trails in the bush, picking berries that grew wild everywhere, sitting by the water and relaxing to the silence. Wendy came to the city to pursue a career in accounting and payroll, but when she began working with the Wilderness Committee in 2015, she was excited to have the chance to play a role in our wilderness campaigns as well. As the Campaign Assistant in our Manitoba office, Wendy helps keep the office running while also helping to protect parks, rivers, forests and animals – it's a great feeling and something she has always wanted to do.
