Speaker: Annette Sandberg
Topic:  450 Million Year creation of the Niagara Escarpment.

 Annette Sandberg is a Simcoe and Grey County historical researcher whose storytelling comes to life through her work as a freelance community historical writer and speaker for museums, community groups, theatre, and certified guided hikes on the Niagara Escarpment.   

Annette Sandberg grew up on the Niagara Escarpment on a farm between Castle Glen & Scenic Caves and now resides in Collingwood. Her love for the area developed as a child and it has driven her to research and document our local history, focusing primarily on its 450-million-year formation to the time of the Petun and the early immigrants of the 1800's. In 2018, Annette was elected to the Town of Collingwood Trail & Active Transportation Advisory Committee for a two-year term.

Annette is an active member of the Ontario Museum Association and her articles have been included in the Indigenous and early pioneer exhibits at local Museums, conservation newsletters, and our local CollingwoodToday newspaper. Annette is a certified Ontario Hiking Guide leading historical hikes for Bruce Trail Clubs and independently through her Historical Hiking Tour business. In 2016, she completed the 900 km trek of the Bruce Trail from Queenston Heights to Tobermory and researched and recorded the history of the land that she walked on. This all-encompassing experience, knowledge, and passion have led her to recently be appointed on the Board of Directors for the Escarpment Corridor Alliance Group as Director of Education focusing on the protection of the Niagara Escarpment.
