CPAWS volunteer, Nicole Wadelius , Wins Volunteer Award

February 9, 2010

Winner of Investor’s Group Employee Volunteer Award, Nicole Wadelius has generously given her time to many charitable pursuits including volunteering for the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society – Manitoba Chapter, Healing Hands Healing Hearts Art Show, and Community Outreach Committee. Nicole has spent the last 2 years as Marketing Director on the CPAWS Manitoba’s calendar committee providing valuable leadership in marketing and advertising. She has been integral to the success of the boreal wilderness calendar which raises funds and educates about wilderness conservation opportunities in Manitoba.

“I find it very important to protect our province’s natural wilderness, specifically in the boreal region, so that the beautiful species of flora and fauna can continue to flourish in order to maintain a healthy and plentiful eco-system and so First Nations people in these regions can continue to maintain their traditional activities and cultural heritage.  Overall I feel that I chose to volunteer with them so that future generations of Manitobans can continue to experience and enjoy our province’s natural beauty for generations to come.”

Nicole’s dedication and energy shine which consequently motivates those around her. As one who always goes above and beyond, , we are delighted that she has received this well deserved recognition. Congratulations Nicole from the CPAWS staff and board of directors.
