2016/2017 Volunteer of the year

Bob Schultheis' generosity and time dedicated to the Conservancy knows no bounds. Bob serves all areas of the Conservancy’s mission. He began volunteering with the Conservancy after he moved from the St. Louis area in 2009. Since then, he has generously donated total of 5,465 hours. 


Bob volunteers as a Dalton Discovery Center Docent, in the von Arx Wildlife Hospital as well as a Critter Courier. Additionally, Bob dedicates countless hours as co-coordinator for Briggs Boardwalk. He also is a valued member of the Wildlife Committee.

Bob volunteers at least 5 days a week for the Conservancy of Southwest Florida in his various volunteer positions. 

When asked what prompted him to become a volunteer he said, “I had visited the Conservancy many times, liked what I saw and thought I’d try to help”. 

When he’s not volunteering for the Conservancy Bob enjoys learning about wildlife, history, opera, ballet, classical music, and watching Cardinal’s baseball.


Thank you, Bob, for all that you do to help protect Southwest Florida’s water, land, wildlife and future.
