Description


National Call Occurred On March 6th, 2020



Jennifer grew up spending her spare time outdoors which created a passion for our natural environment. When time came to determine what field of work she wanted to get into, she decided upon the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Technician Program in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. From there she took her first job as a Resource Officer with Manitoba Conservation, followed by the Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre as the Education Coordinator using wildlife in a presentations to engage and inspire the protection of our wildlife species. Since 2012, Jennifer has been working with Manitoba Conservation and Climate as a Senior Park Interpreter based out of Spruce Woods Provincial Park in western Manitoba. As a park interpreter she trains, educates and inspires staff and the public on the historical, cultural, natural and management topics that are found within her park. In 2017 Jennifer was honoured with the Outstanding New Interpreter Award from the National Association of Interpreters. Jennifer is also heavily involved in the Manitoba Envirothon, working as the Steering Committee co-chair, and the Wildlife Discipline Chair. You can usually find her on an adventure with her son in the park, looking for wildlife tracks and scats.
