Dear Friends,

After more than ten years working as the curator at the Edith G. Read Wildlife Sanctuary, I have been reassigned to Marshlands Conservancy starting February 8th. Scott Williamson, long-time curator at Marshlands will be your new curator at Read.

There are no words to express my immense gratitude to you – all of the visitors, the Friends board, volunteers, and friends I have met here who have helped to make my time at the sanctuary so wonderful and rewarding. It has been my honor to serve both the diversity of wildlife that call the sanctuary their home, and the tens of thousands of people who have found renewal of body, mind, spirit, and emotions at this special place. It is a privilege for me to be able to share the wonders of nature with all of you. I’ll be just 3 miles away in my new post, so I invite you to visit me there sometime and say hello – again!

Michael Gambino
