A well-known local area conservation officer is looking forward to doing a little fishing of his own.

After over 30 years working as a conservation officer in Espanola, Denis Lefebvre is set to retire with tomorrow being his last day of manning the local office.

His partner, Terry Lynn Johnson says it has been a busy three decades with him overseeing many Ministry of Natural Resources & Forestry programs and being out on the trails and waterways of Northern Ontario, doing the job he thoroughly enjoyed.

She says he especially enjoyed working with various local organizations such as the Espanola Game and Fish Club, the annual deer checks, educational seminars shared with communities throughout the North Shore corridor, and teaching kids about conservation.

She adds he won’t be going too far, but there might be some fishing and maybe a little hunting on his horizon soon.
