Remembering Bob Anderson
By RRP board member David Lynch
Seven years ago today the world lost a great advocate for nature, and we lost a good friend. This is a favorite picture of Bob and I, after we rescued fledgling eagle FOUR in 2014. We were in the process of reuniting her with her sibling D18 in Decorah, Iowa after we found her trapped in a cornfield, unable to fly herself out. That was quite a day, full of memories, laughs and good times.

I miss my friend. For those who knew Bob. I ask that you try and do something good for nature or the environment today in his memory. The world is a lesser place without his presence.
As Bob would say…live long and prosper 🖖🏻🍺🥃🍪
