I have volunteered in the Edmonton region for over 50 years. I’ve had many different roles like being a board president for the Edmonton Natural History Club to volunteering with students directly through the Centre for Family Literacy. I volunteer out of a responsibility to be involved in my community; to network and meet new people, learn about local issues, and contribute to relevant and meaningful solutions. Having others be able to truly experience and enjoy the outdoors, perhaps for the first time, or to understand a sentence that opens their mind to so many exciting opportunities – is a fantastic feeling!
