Mac was deeply committed to the preservation of Ontario's and Canada's natural heritage. His efforts resulted in the acquisition of thousands of acres along the Niagara Escarpment secured in conjunction with public and non-profit nature organizations, including the Bruce Trail Conservancy.
Mac was fundamental in the creation of the Sydenham Bruce Trail Club 50 years ago. He will be remembered and missed by many Bruce Trail members.
