Klein became the Curator of
the Trailside Museum in September of 2009. He has been with the
County since 1998, and had been the Curator of the Edith G. Read
Natural Park and Wildlife Sanctuary in Rye since April of 2001.
This is Jason's second tour at the Museum as he had previously
been the hourly naturalist and Assistant Curator before being
transferred to Read Sanctuary. Jason received a BA from Colby
College and an MPA from Pace University. He is very excited to
be back at Trailside, and looks forward to reconnecting with
the wonderful patrons of Westchester's largest County park.
- Our "extended staff" members
- Jack Cedarholm: Another long-time volunteer, he really is a
"Jack-of-all-trades" and keeps things working at the
museum. His smiling face and constant support and encouragement
keeps the atmosphere light, while his broad spectrum of knowledge
never ceases to amaze.
The bluebird population in the park could consider Jim to be
one of their great benefactors. Jim has been monitoring the bluebirds
since 1990 with a steadfast commitment to Project Bluebird, which
began in 1969. Thanks to Jim and his volunteers, over 140 young
bluebirds are surviving each year. Jim also lends Jack a hand
with projects around the museum. In addition to supplying nesting
data for biodiversity research at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation
these observations are submitted over the Internet to the Cornell
Laboratory of Ornithology. To find out how this information is
