Paul Morris, M.Sc.
He completed his undergraduate degree at Waterloo University in biology and then went on to complete his Masters at Acadia University in Nova Scotia, Canada. Those two years involved intensive greenhouse, laboratory and field research on native plants. After receiving his degree he worked for an environmental engineering firm in Toronto where he researched sources of native plants for restoration projects. Finding a large hole in native plant material supply in Ontario he decided to set out on his own and start a native plant nursery. As the owner of Acorus Restoration, Paul contributed greatly to the organization and vision of the company. His in-depth knowledge of native plants gave him insight into the mass production over 400 species of plants for restoration projects. His extensive experience in wetland and Prairie restoration ecology and conservation biology makes him a leader in the design and planting of restoration areas. In 1997, Environment Canada asked him to co-author a manual on Prairie and meadow restoration. He has successfully run Acorus Restoration from 1995 until 2014 achieving sizeable profits since its third year. His primary responsibilities with Acorus Restoration were as Ecological Consultant, Researcher, Planting Designer, Marketer, Graphic Designer and Horticulturist.
