Delena Angrignon

Student of life. Curious. Outdoor enthusiast.

Co-Founder, Admin / Finance, past Board member (2014 to 2017)

Delena and her husband moved to Squamish in 2005 as the old Woodfibre pulp mill was shutting down. It was the beginning of a town going through a revitalization.

They have spent years running the trails, climbing the mountains, and paddling in the local waters of Howe Sound, and have grown to appreciate the gift of living in an area of the world that has clean water and air.

In 2014 after years of enjoying the privilege of living in such a pristine environment, Delena helped co-found My Sea to Sky with other passionate neighbors. With a fossil fuel industry trying to make a comeback to the Woodfibre site located in Howe Sound, she felt pulled to participate in helping to defend and protect this incredible natural environment.

Siobhan Winters

Activist. Nature Enthusiast. Animal Lover.

Social Media Coordinator

Siobhan has always been passionate about the wilderness. Growing up with an inherent love for the planet, she realized at a young age that most of humanity’s priorities seemed critically flawed, and felt compelled to do something about it. A strong desire to protect the planet and the creatures that reside here led Siobhan to be heavily involved in the non-profit sector over the last decade.

From rehabilitating wildlife and fostering kittens, to spearheading rescue missions, to writing letters to elected officials, Siobhan does whatever she can to advocate for the environment.

In her spare time, she loves cuddling her cats, hiking in the backcountry, and lugging her camera around to get photos and videos of wildlife.

She’s worked on environmental issues from multiple angles, having spent time in the environmental consulting industry, the US Forest Service, and the nonprofit world, and is excited to bring these diverse perspectives to fighting to protect Átl’ḵa7tsem / Howe Sound.

In her spare time, Rhiannon loves hiking, trail-running, curling up with a book and a cat, playing board games with her family, and watching live-streamed city council meetings. In previous lifetimes, she’s also been a long-distance hiker, a climber, and a mediocre banjo player.

Katie Perkins

Environmental Justice Activist. Playground Designer/Tester. Trail Runner.

Youth Outreach Coordinator.

Katie is a recent Quest University graduate who has found a home in Squamish amongst mossy forests and curious friends. In her thesis, Unlearning Through Play: A Settler's Perspective on the Function of Adult Play in Decolonizing, Katie combined her love of play with her passion for environmental justice to better understand how systemic problems require deeply creative solutions. She asks questions like, how does settler colonialism contribute to internal conflict in Canada and ultimately to climate change; what is the role of decolonization in preventing further conflict; and finally, can decolonization take place in accessible, playful spaces designed for adults? She hopes to continue exploring these questions and others like them throughout her life.

When she is not asking questions, Katie enjoys sliding down coastal mountains, teaching kids how to ski, dancing in the forest, cooking with her friends, and laughing. Play on, she says!
