“So Long, Saul” Online Retirement Celebration

After 35 years of service, the time has come for us to say “So Long, Saul!” It’s hard to believe, but our co-founder and executive director of the past 35 years retired on June 30.

We celebrated Saul Weisberg’s many accomplishments and long-lasting legacy as a visionary nonprofit leader, educator, naturalist and writer with this online tribute, featuring voices from across the Institute’s history sharing stories and well-wishes, plus music, poetry and a toast.

From Institute co-founder Tom Fleischner to former staff, board members and graduate students, from partners at the National Park Service and US Forest Service to poets and artists, “Saulapalooza” was a fitting tribute to a singular and extraordinary career of leadership, generosity and service.
