Val Schroeder of Camano Island, WA was the first National Wildlife Federation Volunteer of the Year!
"The award represents what a cool project Camano has because I certainly didn't do it alone!"
The NWF Volunteer of the Year Award is an NWF organization-wide award and was first
presented in March 2006 at the Annual Meeting in New Orleans. For this award, recipients
have to be nominated by their peers, NWF staff or NWF affiliate members for their volunteerism
in the prior calendar year.
