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.
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.
