Jennifer Dewland Named DUC’s Prince Edward Island Volunteer of the Year

April 18, 2024 Prince Edward Island

Every Moment Matters: Shaping the Future Through Volunteering

CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI, April 16, 2024 /CNW/ – Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) proudly announces Jennifer Dewland as the Prince Edward Island Volunteer of the Year. Dewland, a steadfast advocate for wetland conservation and a remarkable community builder, has significantly contributed to the success of DUC’s initiatives over her five years of dedication.

Since moving from Labrador City, Newfoundland, Dewland has been a driving force behind DUC’s Charlottetown chapter, instrumental in organizing the annual Spring Shoot event and enhancing community engagement. Her involvement in various DUC events and programs, including the Duck and Run and DUC Land Monitoring Program, showcases her commitment to conservation efforts.

Her passion for conservation and community development has left a tangible impact on PEI’s wetlands and inspired a broader demographic, especially younger women, to volunteer. DUC celebrates her leadership, dedication, and the sense of community she fosters.

“I think my favourite moment from my experiences with DUC so far was seeing a tiny child’s tricycle sell at the 2022 live auction for over $700. What a crazy moment to be a part of!”

It’s these moments, she says, and the sense of community that comes with them, that is such an important driver for her work. That and the conservation impact she’s been able to see in real time. “This ever-growing network of community and seeing physical improvements to wetland projects around the Island thanks to our efforts is so motivating,” says Jennifer.
