Greg Bowron (1962-2007)

When Greg Bowron died in 2007 at the early age of 45, the New Zealand conservation community lost one of its most ardent advocates.

Greg was the first employee of Salmond Architects, forerunner to the present Salmond Reed Architects.

Greg was a passionate proponent of the role of education in increasing public understanding of conservation and cultural awareness.
