Linda is AWA’s longest-serving volunteer, having started her work with AWA in 1985. Over the decades Linda’s adaptability to the varying needs of the association has been remarkable. She has a surprising array of talents that the AWA eagerly taps into, including an ability to graphically design and conceptualize, to organize, to care for plants and her compassion and heartfelt concern for wildlife is beyond compare. She keeps AWA’s houseplants healthy, and pursues endless tasks with tenacity. Through the years she has helped maintain membership records, records for the annual climb for wilderness and the gala. Her artistic talents are reflected everywhere within and without AWA’s building in the form of colourful signs, special cards and bird houses. Along with her husband Yusuf, the couple makes and donates beautifully decorated chests for auction each year at AWA’s annual Gala. Linda’s regular work, organizing endless files within the Wilderness Resource Centre in preparation for on-line cataloguing, along with the various daily tasks that arise means we can achieve so much more. Often seen riding her bicycle to the office, she cheerfully makes deliveries and helps save our precious resources. Linda is an AWA Treasure.
