Adam Gorgolewski

Research Coordinator

Adam loves: foraging, fishing, and his bird Teresa.

You might meet Adam during: a Natural History Presentation, a guided hike, or out in the bush conducting research.


Adam moved to Canada from England when he was 13. He obtained a BSc and MSc, and is currently working on his PhD, all in forestry at the University of Toronto. He is also working towards becoming a registered professional forester.

Adam first arrived at Haliburton Forest as an undergraduate student in 2011 to participate in the various forestry-based research projects that occur here. Over the following years he returned every summer to conduct his own research as a graduate student. Since 2018 Adam has worked as our Research Coordinator and now also runs our sugar bush, producing maple syrup every spring.

When he isn’t working Adam enjoys spending time in the forest, fishing, foraging for wild foods and growing his own.
