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.
