Annie & Audubon

Feb 16, 2023 | The Sandpiper

Annie McIntyre retired on December 14, 2022, from the New York State Parks Long Island Regional Environmental Office after over 20 years of service. She belonged to the Southshore Audubon and was a supporter of many Audubon projects. She is an avid birder and naturalist, inside and outside of State Parks.

During her career, she has always advocated for the wellbeing of wildlife. When there were concerns regarding the holiday lights display at Jones Beach State Park being dangerous to migrating birds, she and her staff would check every day to make sure all birds were safe. Annie managed the Piping Plover Protection Program, which has been very successful in continuing the protection and growth of the population. She was also involved with getting bluebird boxes installed and monitored at Connetquot River State Park Preserve.

Thank you, Annie, for many years of dedication and happy retirement!
