Another returning board member, Kane has contributed to organizations like the Food Bank of Northern Nevada and the Oakland Zoo, where he served as board chair and oversaw major expansions and fundraising efforts.

The three outgoing board members, who each served Birch Creek over the past three years, are Diane Tallion, who served on the Development Committee; Bill Hensge, who was the President of the Associates Volunteers; and Sam Carmen, who was the Development Chairperson and on Birch Creek’s Executive Committee.
