Saying Farewell

From Toby Goldberg, Education and Outreach Director: "When I returned to the Bay Area at the beginning of 2006, I was thrilled to hear about an open staff position with the local Audubon Chapter. The timing couldn't have been better, and it seemed like the perfect fit for my (somewhat odd) assortment of skills and interests. Now, as I prepare to depart almost a decade later, I gratefully acknowledge how important being a part of this organization has been to my development as a birder, an educator, a planner, and a team member. I have learned so much, and almost can't imagine myself as anything other than an SCVAS staff member. " More in the Avocet, page 6.
