Bylane Farm by Bob Rohr

Why I’m passionate about Bedford Audubon:

A passionate advocate for the Bedford Audubon mission of connecting people to nature, you may have met Melanie at a community event, or at one of our many workshops and programs in the past few years.

More about me:

Melanie Brocklehurst has chaired the Program Committee since 2021 and has been leading the Bylane Book Club since 2018. A native of the UK, she “found” Bedford Audubon after moving to Katonah in 2013, and her eyes and ears were opened to the birds on her first Third Thursday walk. Melanie currently works as a Reference Librarian at Lewisboro Library, and prior to moving to the US had a career in libraries across various sectors in London. With an undergraduate degree in Applied Biology, her love of nature has come full circle since becoming involved with Bedford Audubon.
