Last month the National Audubon Society announced Suzanne Langley as the new executive director of Audubon Texas. Langley joins the Texas office after serving as executive director of Birmingham Audubon Society in Alabama for five years.
“The amazingly varied species and habitat of the state and inspirational conservation work by Audubon Texas is something I look forward to becoming a part of,” said Langley in a press release. “Prairie species first hooked me working with Audubon in Arkansas and Mississippi. Having the opportunity to continue grassland, coastal and urban conservation in Texas is exciting.”
As head of Audubon Texas, Langley will oversee the organization’s programs in urban conservation, coastal conservation and grasslands & prairie conservation as well as the oversight of three nature and education centers: Trinity River Audubon Center, Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center and Mitchell Lake Audubon Center.
In addition to more than a decade working in the Audubon network, Langley has extensive corporate and nonprofit management experience ranging from healthcare to higher education. She earned a bachelor’s degree in English from Auburn University and a graduate certificate in nonprofit management from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
