Eileen Gerle hails from Long, NY, where she made her living as an Environmental Educator and Naturalist. Before moving to Venice eight years ago, she visited Florida frequently with the sole purpose of birding, and soon after her move joined Venice Area Audubon Society and Sarasota Audubon. She has been an active volunteer for VAAS ever since, and is currently on their board of directors. Although officially “retired”, Eileen teaches birding classes for Adult and Community Enrichment and is an educator for CHEC at Cedar Point. She also recently published a book entitled “One Ugly Ass Bird – Memorable Moments from time spent with Mother Nature”.
