This was Cathy Gulka’s reaction when the Regina resident learned that she had been selected as Saskatchewan’s Volunteer of the Year.
Giving back to nature is part of Kevin Guenard’s DNA. The Calgary outdoorsman has spent the past 22 years volunteering with DUC to conserve Alberta’s precious wetlands—including those along the Sheep River Valley where Guenard first got hooked on the wild as a youngster.
Fastened to Paul-Emile Bélanger’s lapel is a pin in the shape of a duck head. For good reason, he wears it close to his heart. Not only is it a memento he personally designed and produced, it’s a symbol of his commitment to DUC’s wetland conservation mission.
How committed is Chris Fader to supporting wetland conservation? Not even a hurricane can stop him. It’s this kind of steadfastness that made Fader a joint-recipient of Ducks Unlimited Canada’s (DUC) volunteer of the year award in New Brunswick—an honour he shares with John Johnston of Hanwell.
For more than three decades, Chilliwack’s Henry Kozler has been helping conserve wetlands to protect our water, our wildlife and our future. DUC in B.C. is honoured to name Kozler as its volunteer of the year for the province.
He’s been a fixture on DUC’s legendary fundraising scene for decades. It’s his attitude that stands out; his consistently encouraging approach inspires volunteers and supporters to strive for the title of DUC’s top-earning fundraising event year after year at their Toronto Conservation Dinner.
“Busy as a bee” is an apt description of Manitoba DUC volunteer Tammy Molinski. The fact that she’s about to become a beekeeper only helps seal the deal.
DUC volunteers are renowned for their devoted service and loyalty. New Brunswick’s John Johnston is the gold standard.
Katrina Hillier is a busy person. But despite working with several businesses in her home of Goose Bay, Labrador, she always has time to volunteer with her local DUC chapter.
With hope and help from nature, we will make it—together.
