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 Education Administrator and Marketing Liaison for the Education team. Her current work at Portland Audubon is a reflection of her varied background: a degree in Secondary Education from Ball State University in Indiana, a middle school humanities and science teacher, and a love for storytelling through writing and photography. Tara is an avid birder and she loves sharing her passion for birds and the environment with others.
