2013 Volunteer of the Year Award
Caroline Park came to NCVLI in September 2012 with a background in private sector marketing as well as public and nonprofit administration related to environmental issues. Caroline volunteers at NCVLI’s offices regularly as a “Jill of all trades.” From data entry and data management, to publications production, to writing grants, to event coordination, Caroline has jumped in on nearly every aspect of NCVLI’s functioning. So far, Caroline has donated over 150 hours to NCVLI! During the rest of her time, Caroline works for the River Network, a network of more than 2,000 state, regional and local grassroots organizations whose primary mission is protecting water as a natural resource. In late May Caroline traveled to Missouri to coordinate the River Network’s annual national conference of more than 500 attendees. She also works at the Aviary Restaurant in Portland. In her free time she loves doing anything outdoors, especially on the coast, and enjoys food preservation and crocheting.
