Schulte first started volunteering with the District in 1991 after she saw an article about a “cleanup” event at Lockport Prairie Nature Preserve. She said she was looking for a way to get some exercise without going to a gym.

The work suited her and she soon signed up to volunteer as a preserve steward for Hickory Creek Barrens Nature Preserve in New Lenox.
