I recently received this note from Jeff Cantrell:

" ...this came from Greg Swick and Dr. Janice Greene earlier today.  What a well-deserved recognition!
Andrew Kinslow is certainly one of our own and a life member of ASM. 

We are incredibly proud of him.  - Jeff"


Hi GLADE Staff, Planning Committee, and friends,
It is such an honor to announce to you that Andrew Kinslow has been awarded the 2014 ABA Chandler Robbins Award for Outstanding Bird Educator and Conservationist!  We all know that Andrew is an amazing scientist and educator,  and that he is so deserving of this distinguished, national honor!  He will be coordinating schedules with Jeffrey Gordon, president of the American Birding Association.  Mr. Gordon plans  to come up here to present the award personally to Andrew.   He is thinking about trying to do this during the April 17th GOAS meeting when Andrew is presenting "The Neotropical Connection"
Here's the award description:
The ABA Chandler Robbins Award Education/Conservation
Given 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.
Here are the previous winners... You just might recognize a few of them!

The March issue of The Bluebird, ASM's quarterly journal, will feature more detailed information about Andrew's contributions to conservation education in Missouri.  Watch for it. 

Congratulations, Andrew!
