Olson, dubbed the “Bog Lady” by some, has been at the helm of the conservation society since the bog group’s formation in 1988.

“Well, I’m rather flattered, and honoured to be a nominee for the Women of Worth award because there are a lot of women who are equally worthy, if not more so,” Olson says in YouTube video posted on the site.
