Joe Coleman presented with American Birding Association’s Chandler Robbins Award Education/Conservation
Mike Bowen of the American Birding Association presented this important award to Joe at our Annual Meeting on Sunday.
Nominees for this award come from across the United States and we are thrilled that Joe was recognized for all his hard work and dedication to bird conversation on a macro level.
This award is given to an individual for making significant contributions to birder education and/or bird conservation.
This award recognizes outstanding efforts in birder education, bird conservation or in the management or preservation of habitats on which birds and birding depends. It is presented to an individual in either area or to someone who has achieved in both areas. ABA considers that the quality and scope of Chan Robbin’s work make him an outstanding person after whom to name the award.
