Connecticut Audubon Society Names Alexander R. Brash of Riverside as New President

Alexander R. Brash, a longtime conservation leader and Connecticut resident with an extensive record of success managing non-profits and government agencies, has been named president of Connecticut Audubon Society.

A skillful birder who is as comfortable scoping seabirds as he is in a meeting room, Brash will take on the task of continuing and expanding Connecticut Audubon Society’s many recent successes, including the delivery of first-rate educational programs, conservation-focused advocacy campaigns, and the sustainable management of its preserves.

Brash will start as president of Connecticut Audubon Society on September 9, taking over for Robert Martinez, who retired in late August after a decade as president of the organization.

Brash comes to CAS from his previous position as senior director for the northeast region of the National Parks Conservation Association, a non-profit that works to protect and support America’s national parks, where he had been since 2004. During his tenure there, he opened the Northeast Regional office, built a strong and diverse team, developed an impressive array of programs, and helped raise more than $40 million for the organization.

Previously he held positions with the New York City Department of Park and Recreation, including as its chief ranger and head of its Natural Resources Group.

A resident of Connecticut for much of his life, Brash has lived in nearly each corner of the state, and now resides in Riverside.
