Marlene Pantin brings an interdisciplinary background to her work with broad experience in behavioral health, applied research, planning, and policy. She supports the Audubon network in advocacy, municipal engagement, and building strategic partnerships to advance the Plants for Birds program and create bird-friendly communities across the country. Thinking she has too much free time (who doesn’t), Marlene founded and currently leads both an environmental nonprofit and borough-wide organization. When she is not working she can also be found volunteering and managing community and corporate volunteers in protecting and preserving local parks and open spaces. Marlene is always excited to listen, chat, and share. She is passionate about encouraging and representing marginalized and underrepresented voices wherever she works and plays.
