An Edgemont resident with ties to the 33-acre woodland preserve has been appointed executive director of the Greenburgh Nature Center.
Margaret Tjimos Goldberg will take over the position on September 10, after serving on the center’s board of directors from 2004 to 2009. During that time period, she helped expand fundraising efforts and develop partnerships with local businesses and community organizations.
In 2009, Goldberg also received an award from the center in recognition of her outstanding and dedicated service to the organization.
“The search process produced a number of excellent candidates,” said Bennett Fradkin, the board’s president. ”(We) felt that Margaret was, by far, the best fit for the nature center going forward.”
Goldberg will oversee the center’s extensive nature and wildlife offerings, including a greenhouse featuring botanical exhibits and live animal museum with more than 100 specimens.
“The nature center offers many programs and events throughout the year, and we can actively build on that strong foundation to further engage our community,” she said in a statement released today.
Located off Central Park Avenue, the preserve’s grounds remain open daily from dawn to dusk throughout the year. For more information on indoor exhibits and admission fees, visit the center’s website.
