Bob Wasilewski was recently presented the Volunteer Conservation Award from the Pennsylvania Game Commission for his contributions to bird conservation. Wasilewski serves as president of the Greater Wyoming Valley Audubon Society and has been pivotal to peregrine falcon monitoring for the last 15 years. “He’s been the eyes and ears for peregrine activity,” said PGC biologist Kevin Wenner. “Everything that comes together when we band peregrine chicks is because of Bob’s monitoring on a weekly basis.” Wasilewski is also a leader with bird counts and surveys in the region. “Finding committed and dedicated volunteers is becoming increasingly difficult,” Wenner said. “It’s nice to know the Game Commission has individuals such as Bob available to assist us.”
