Volunteer Spotlight

We are pleased to acknowledge Tako Koning for his numerous contributions and time devoted as a volunteer for CEGA over the past 40 years! His dedication deserves special recognition, and we are honored to do that now.  One of the most invaluable contributions Tako has made to the association is the series of field trips he continues to lead for CEGA each year. Tako’s field trips in 2023 to the K/Pg extinction boundary and the Tyndall Stone Walking Tour of Calgary were both first class and well attended by our members.  His vast geologic knowledge, both local and international, has been shared with CEGA members through his presentations at CEGA technical divisions and at many GeoConventions over the years.  Additionally, Tako always demonstrates a positive and inclusive attitude that shines through with everyone. We are proud to have Tako as a member, and we are grateful to benefit from all he does. Congratulations Tako!
