Shining Star: Jacquelyn Walker
Volunteer Lethbridge would like to recognize Jacquelyn as one of our outstanding volunteers. Jacquelyn came to Volunteer Lethbridge in September of 2013, looking for different volunteer opportunities to connect with here in Lethbridge. When the opportunity arose to volunteer with us as a SCiP intern, Jacquelyn was more than enthusiastic to jump in head first! Aside from her many other voluntary commitments with other organizations, and attending university full-time, Jacquelyn has contributed over 160 hours to her SCiP project with our Leaders of Tomorrow program. Her strength in leadership and passion for volunteering has been a valuable asset to building volunteer capacity within our community. With her kind and understanding heart, friendly nature, commitment and all of her amazing skills, Jacquelyn impacts Volunteer Lethbridge. We are very grateful that Jacquelyn came through the Volunteer Lethbridge doors, and has found a place where she is free to share her talents and skills. Thank you Jacquelyn, for all of your hard work and for the impact that you have had in our community!

Agency of the Week Profile
Date of Publication: April 24, 2015
Agency Name: Helen Schuler Nature Centre
Since it opened in 1982, The Helen Schuler Nature Centre, operated by the City of Lethbridge, has changed and grown with the community. Guided by their vision, “our community appreciates and understands the local natural environment through experience and discovery”, the Nature Centre plays a vital role in the awareness of local habitat. Complying with their mission, “we are an urban nature centre delivering diverse and dynamic nature interpretive programs in our community through a team of volunteers, staff and partners”, the Helen Schuler Nature Centre provides programming for all ages to learn and enjoy the unique features of local wildlife and land features.
How The Community Can Help:
The Helen Schuler Nature Centre is currently looking for volunteers to help with the annual city wide Coulee Clean-Up. Starting now and continuing through to May 31, 2015 volunteers will contribute to the objective of the Coulee Clean-Up by removing accumulated litter and debris from Lethbridge’s natural areas. Goals of the program include the beautification of Lethbridge’s natural landscape, encouraging community participation in environmental protection, and above all nature appreciation. It is a great opportunity to spend time outside exploring the river valley as it provides the chance to enjoy the outdoors while making a difference in our community. The Nature Centre coordinates a variety of volunteer projects and events that occur during the year including The Weed-Pull (June – September 2015) where volunteers can help identify and remove invasive plant species and the Shoreline Clean-up (September 2015) and help pick up garbage along the banks of the Oldman River. For more information contact Curtis Goodman at 403-320-4985 or email: Curtis.Goodman@Lethbridge.ca
