March 2020

Lynda Schuchman has a PhD in Public Health, and she taught Statistics at New York University before moving to Southwest Florida. When she moved to Naples she was an adjunct professor at Florida Gulf Coast University where she taught Epidemiology and Human Sexuality.


Lynda began volunteering at the Conservancy in the Dalton Discovery Center and the von Arx Wildlife Hospital where she was a dedicated volunteer in these areas, She spoke with visiting guests about the Conservancy’s work, completed regular shifts in the wildlife hospital, and in addition to her other responsibilities, each week she stopped at Publix to transport boxes of donated produce for the patients at the wildlife hospital.

Two years ago when the Volunteer Activities Committee was formed, she became an enthusiastic supporter and active planner of events for volunteers. Last year she co-chaired the committee and took on many organizational responsibilities such as creating flyers for each event, registering and responding to volunteers who signed-up for each of the 12 events, sending reminders before each event and more!

This past summer she moved to Plymouth, MA to be closer to family. Although she now lives in Massachusetts she continues to serve as co-chair. She is still very actively involved with V.I.P. events and helps coordinate programs, collateral, registration, and communication with registrants. She believes strongly in the benefits of the V.I.P. lectures, trips and Good Fortune Cruises offered to the volunteers. Lynda wants everyone to know that they should cherish the volunteering they do for an organization as amazing as the Conservancy. “Volunteers may not be paid but the experiences we have are priceless.”

We thank Lynda for her role in protecting Southwest Florida’s unique natural environment and quality of life…now and forever.
