Ralph is excited to put his leadership experience and passion about local nature to work at SCVAS. He has been an Audubon member for nearly twenty years and an avid advocate for birds such as the California Condor, and led field trips for local businesses and nonprofits. Ralph brings over fifteen years of leadership and development in nonprofit business, including running a private nonprofit foundation supporting environmental education for youth over the last nine years.
