Maxwell W. Finkelstein

Max has spent his career as a biologist, interpretive planner and park planner with Canada’s national parks and the Canadian Wildlife Service. He has travelled more than 25,000 km by canoe throughout North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Australia and has published two books on his paddling adventures. Max received the prestigious Bill Mason Award (National) for lifetime achievement in Canadian river conservation in 2009, was named one of Canada’s top 100 living explorers in 2015 by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, and received the 2017 Nature Inspiration Award from the Canadian Museum of Nature for his work in bringing Canada to Canadians. In the summer of 2017, to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial, Max organized the Four Winds Brigade — the largest gathering of fur trade canoes in Ottawa since the fur trade era.
