Environmental Compliance Officer, Meghan Hendry, manages the contaminated sites program, ground water and surface water monitoring programs.

Matthew Cybulski, Garrison Petawawa’s Environment/Wildlife Technician, manages the Species at Risk program and wildlife management. He works with both military units and Real Property Operations Unit _Detachment Petawawa to determine any environmentally sensitive areas or species that should be avoided.
