Brodie Cass Talbott
Brodie works as an educator with Portland Audubon. After many years of wildland firefighting and leading river tours, he spent six years living and teaching across Asia, where his interest in birds became his passion. He has birded across five continents, and uses his experience in education and ecotourism to share his love of the outdoors with people from all ages, backgrounds, and abilities, with an eye towards increasing access to wild spaces for people from diverse communities.
Tara works as the Assistant Director, Adult Learning & Engagement. She wears many hats on the Education team, including communications and marketing, leading local outings and Pacific Northwest trips, database administration, staff photographer, and all the behind-the-scenes action for the department. As a self-professed “bird nerd”, Tara is deeply committed to inclusive environmental education and bringing people together to care about birds and their habitats. Not only does she love noticing birds, but she also loves when you notice birds.
