2014 Tory Peterson Award

Congratulations to KUMD’s Laura Erickson, who recently received the American Birding Association’s 2014 Roger Tory Peterson Award for “a lifetime of achievements in promoting the cause of birding.” Laura is the ninth recipient of the award since its inception in 2000 and the first woman to be recognized. Past winners include David Sibley "The Sibley Guide to Birds" and Kenn Kaufman "Birds of North America." In its announcement, the ABA said, "Laura has for many years reached out to non-birders to encourage their interest in birds and birding through the publication of numerous popular books accessible to the average citizen, a radio program that has run without stop since 1986, and a regular column in Bird Watching magazine. Laura is also a contributor to the ABA Blog."  Laura's "For the Birds" will celebrate 28 years on KUMD in May, and airs at 7:30am Monday through Friday.
