Guelph, Ontario, March 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) is proud to recognize the University of Guelph’s Project Serve Volunteers as the latest wetland heroes. This fall, 45 students headed to Hanlong Creek Park to repair a promenade running over the park’s wetlands.
For years, the Project Saab program has helped students gain experience and give back to the community in partnership with local service agencies and nonprofits. This year, they chose to repair the promenade to protect the wetlands of Hanlon Creek and strengthen one of Guelph’s largest natural regions.
“We are proud of the Project Serve volunteers who took action,” says Mariane Bolla, DUC’s Head of National Education. “Wetlands play an important role in cleaning our waters, providing wildlife habitats and protecting our communities from floods.”
Project Serve Volunteers are DUC’s latest wetland heroes and titles given to the youth who lead their wetland conservation projects. DUC’s National Education Program recognizes and supports young people as active partners in wetland conservation. This is the leader of today and tomorrow.
