Forthcoming Changes in Observatory Leadership

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you of my resignation from Lake Michigan Bird Observatory, effective June 30, 2024. Regrettably, due to health reasons, I find it necessary to step down from my role at this time.

Working with Lake Michigan Bird Observatory has been an immensely rewarding experience, and I am deeply grateful for the support and partnership you have provided throughout my tenure. Your belief in our vision has been instrumental in our ability to protect and preserve bird habitat in our region.

While I am saddened to be leaving this incredible organization and the meaningful work we do together, I am confident that the dedicated team will continue to advance our mission with the same passion and dedication. Our team will work diligently to ensure that ongoing programs and initiatives continue without interruption, and that the trust you have placed in us continues to be well-founded.

As I focus on prioritizing my health and well-being, I carry with me the memories of the impactful work we have accomplished and all that I have learned. I am genuinely grateful for the relationships forged and the shared dedication to our mission.

Thank you once again for your steadfast support and partnership. While my role may be changing, my dedication to the mission of Lake Michigan Bird Observatory remains unwavering. I am hopeful that with time, I may be able to continue supporting bird conservation in a different capacity.
