The Connecticut Audubon Society is pleased to announce to its members and supporters that Patrick Comins, one of the most highly-respected conservationists in the state, has been named as the organization's new executive director.

Many of us in the conservation community have known Patrick for years. He has an abiding passion for birds and the environment.

He will lead Connecticut Audubon as it focuses on inspiring an ever-greater spirit of conservation statewide, through its education programs, citizen science initiatives, and habitat improvement projects, and at its seven centers and 20 sanctuaries.

He started his career by conducting bird surveys for the Connecticut Audubon Society, and is currently director of bird conservation for Audubon Connecticut, the state office of the National Audubon Society.

Patrick will begin his new position on July 17, replacing Nelson North, who is retiring after 10 years as director of Fairfield operations and executive director.
