Paula Richards Awarded 2020 Volunteer of the Year

April 6, 2021

Paula Richards received our 2020 Volunteer of the Year award for her outstanding commitment to the children and families of CLR! Over her many years with us, Paula has not only been a consistent zipline facilitator but has connected and coordinated volunteer groups.  She has connected us with the Master Naturalists of the Highland Lakes and the Upper Highland Lakes Nature Center who specialize in nature education lessons for our Family Days, ranch groups and Camp Dreamcatcher. Her passion for connecting people to nature shines with every animated and captivating lesson she teaches while spreading an infectious love for our environment.  Paula continues to tirelessly serve the Highland Lakes Community playing vital roles in other local organizations including the Highland Lakes chapter of Master Naturalists and our partner, Friends of Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge. We are honored to have such a wonderful and dedicated woman as a part of our family of volunteers. Thank you, Paula, for the dedication you have given and for the countless smiles you have brought to the children and families of Candlelight Ranch!
