We Reflect On Ed Carlson's 50 Years at the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary

Stever Parker
Audubon's Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary

The Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary’s Director Emeritus, Ed Carlson, began his career at the sanctuary the day after he graduated high school. Since then, he served as the sanctuary’s director from 1983 to 2012. Carlson has seen the sanctuary transform over 50 years of working there. He joins us in studio to reflect on the ways the sanctuary has changed since his time starting there. He'll be giving a talk on Friday, March 29 called "Ramblings of an Old Audubon Warden" that will kick off the sanctuary's 65th birthday celebration.
