Inspired Giving: Jenna Schulhof

Calgary teacher Jenna Schulhof inspires others with her passion for nature.

When it comes to protecting nature, we often need to experience it first-hand to truly appreciate what’s at stake.

For Jenna Schulhof, a Calgary-based environmental educator and Y2Y monthly donor, that reality drives her work as a teacher as well as her life-long passion for protecting our wilderness regions.

“When you have a sense of wonder about the natural world, it’s infectious and draws others in,” says Jenna, who teaches environment and natural resource programs through an innovative non-profit education society called Inside Education.

Jenna first heard about Y2Y about five years ago, and was immediately struck by the ambitious scale of the project, as well as its hopeful vision for protecting large landscapes.

After a trip to Yukon’s Peel Watershed, she became even more interested, because she saw first-hand how important it was to protect this core region—one of the largest intact wilderness areas on the continent.

With three friends, Jenna paddled the Wind River into the Peel, camping along the river for an unforgettable 18 days, snapping photographs and exploring the area and its diverse wildlife—including owls, caribou and grizzly bears.

Growing up in Calgary, Jenna has always had a soft spot for the outdoors, and she loves to teach others about its many wonders. “The best way to conserve nature is make people fall in love with it and connect with it,” she says. “You need to know about it and experience it.”

We’re truly thankful for Jenna’s support—not only her monthly contributions that make our work possible, but most importantly, the passion for our vision that she lives every day and passes along to her students and others. That’s the greatest gift we could ask for.


For as little as $5/month, or a fancy cup of coffee, you can be a part of this bold vision to connect and protect the Yellowstone to Yukon region.
