Community Liaisons

Community liaisons consider general matters relating to the work of select committees within the organization and bring specific vantage points to the design, restoration and development of the garden master plan and to programs.

LARRY MARTIN
Orange Audubon Society (OAS) Representative

Birding is a vital part of the MBG mission - as is making sure the habitat is welcoming for birds so that people can observe them. OAS has played a vital role as we take steps to restore the garden while disturbing the bird residents and visitors as little as possible.  In 2013, Larry Martin agreed to serve as liaison and to organize the seasonal bird walks, taking over from Dick Smith. We are very grateful for OAS's guidance and leadership.
