Happy birthday Roger Tory Peterson!

Posted on Aug 28, 2014

Happy birthday to Roger Tory Peterson! Dr. Peterson would have been 106 years old today. He believed that the key to solving environmental problems was to understand and appreciate the plants and animals in our world through art, education and conservation. This is a philosophy we at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute embrace wholeheartedly – learn it, love it, protect it! Please come see us at RTPI (311 Curtis Street in Jamestown, New York) to view Dr. Peterson’s work and collections and to learn more about our natural world. Here he is hard at work as photographed by Noble Proctor.
