September 17 Walk with Laura Erickson

The Library and WellU are sponsoring a campus birding walk with noted author & ornithologist, Laura Erickson.

Laura's books include For the Birds: An Uncommon Guide (1994), Hawk Ridge: Minnesota's Birds of Prey (2012), and The National Geographic Pocket Guide to the Birds of North America (2013). Her most recent publication is Into the Nest: Intimate Views of the Courting, Parenting, and Family Lives of Familiar Birds (2015).

Laura is the host--on KUMD and other northland stations--of For the Birds, which is the longest-running radio show about birds and birding in the United States.

In 2014, Laura was given the Roger Tory Peterson Award--a lifetime achievement award from the American Birding Association.

Our walk on Thursday, September 17 will start at 7:30 a.m. outside the Chapel and last 90 minutes. Please register for the event here:
