Laura Erickson, longtime KUMD volunteer and creator of For The Birds, has been honored with the 2020 Minnesota Ornithologists’ Union’s Thomas Sadler Roberts Award.

The award, considered the MOU's lifetime achievement award, was given to Erickson “For outstanding contributions to Minnesota ornithology and birding.”

For the Birds debuted on KUMD in the spring of 1986 and Laura has been producing it on a volunteer basis for almost 35 years.
