Bob Anderson

The late Bob Anderson, who led the Raptor Resource Project for decades, loved the Driftless Region. He worked with the producers of Decoding the Driftless and helped them in a variety of ways, most recently as an on-camera expert on the restoration of peregrine falcons to the Upper Mississippi River Valley. He is greatly missed.
