Peggy Boston

Peggy is a native Houstonian, a retired architect, who considers herself amazing lucky to have discovered the birding world some 25 years ago. She is a generalist, who has enjoyed the wonders of the natural world while camping, scuba diving, cycling and hiking the world. Peggy is especially proud to have represented Houston Audubon on the Galveston committee that created Featherfest. Over the past years, she has been proud to have shared the birds of the Texas Gulf Coast with all the visitors to Houston Audubon’s “globally important birding areas” of High Island and Bolivar Flats.

Peggy has served on either the Board of Directors or Board of Advisors of Houston Audubon since 1997. She is happiest when muddy, working on trails, cleaning up the beach or planting native plants, for the birds. She was fortunate to have been mentored by some of the icons of Houston Audubon: Ellen Red, Margaret Anderson, Winnie Burkett & Laura Singleton plus many others who have so generously shared with her their love of birds.
