Mieke Schipper Mieke is Gamiing’s founder and currently volunteers as our Executive Director. Mieke purchased the Gamiing property as a refuse farm and implemented a plan to rehabilitate and replant the property. She placed the property in a land trust so that the public could enjoy the natural habitat in perpetuity, no matter who owned the property. In fact, this was the first gift to the Kawartha Heritage Conservancy, helping to launch the organization. Mieke then helped establish Gamiing Nature Centre as a separate, charitable organization with a Board of Directors to guide the activities on the property.
