Mark Chao of Ithaca, Tompkins County, NY.
Why are you a member?
I am crazy about birds. I became a member because I concluded that the best way to protect birds is to preserve their habitats — and, in turn, the best way to preserve habitat for birds and other wildlife in our region is to support the Land Trust.
How long have you been a member of FLLT?
Member since 2004.
What’s your favorite FLLT activity and/or preserve, and why?
I can’t pick a single best Land Trust preserve for birding. I love each one as a unique place, and I love them collectively for their diversity.
