About the John B Holdstock Scholarship
John Holdstock was an avid outdoorsman who was committed to conservation. John played an active role in numerous BC conservation organizations, and was well-respected as a recreationalist, conservationist, volunteer and friend. The John B. Holdstock scholarship was created following John’s passing on December 25, 2010 with contributions from the BC Conservation Foundation, The Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, The Nature Trust of BC and The Okanagan Region Wildlife Heritage Society and others who wished to see John’s passion and commitment sustained by the next generation of conservation professionals.
