We are so proud of Indiana young birder (also, IYBC Youth Advisor and 2013 Indiana Young Birder of the Year) Alexandra Forsythe! On November 11, 2013 she was awarded the Robert Cooper Audubon Society's Charles D. Wise Youth Conservation Award for her outstanding efforts with raising awareness of wild birds.
From Richard Crossley:
"Congratulations Alex on receiving the Charles D. Wise Youth Conservation Award---it is well deserved. Leaders lead by their actions so it comes as no surprise you are setting up an outreach program for young birders at Limberlost State Historic Site. You are accomplishing so much. Please keep it going because you are already leading by example and inspiring many of us to do more."
Congratulations Alex! We are proud to have you on our team!
