We’ve Come A Long Way Baby! Or Have We?


FEB 13-  We’ve Come A Long Way Baby! Or Have We?, Alexis R. Faust, Executive Director, Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm

Alexis Faust will discuss the state of conservation thirty years ago, where we are today, and what we might have to look forward to thirty years in our future.

Faust is responsible for managing Aullwood’s 200-acre nature sanctuary and working farm as part of The National Audubon Society. Aullwood serves 60,000 students annually in STEMing and educational field trips exploring nature and farming. Alexis began her career at Princeton University as manager of the Princeton Materials Institute and the Princeton Center for Complex Materials, where an NSF grant sparked her passion for science education outreach. To pursue that interest she left Princeton to join Colombia University’s Biosphere 2 Center as head of public outreach. She was the Director of the Flandrau Science Center and planetarium in Tucson, Arizona and before coming to Aullwood she was President and CEO of Taltree Arboretum and Gardens in northwest Indiana.


Audubon Miami Valley meets the second Monday of February, March, April, and May in 2017 in the 2nd floor conference room of the Lebanon Citizens National Bank building at 30 West Park Place. These meetings are free and open to the public.
