Thomas Sadler Roberts Bird Sanctuary history, with Constance Pepin
May 17 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
In 1936, the Park Board designated 31 acres of the land along the north shore of Lake Harriet as
a bird sanctuary that was later named for Thomas Sadler Roberts, considered the father of
Minnesota ornithology. Constance Pepin and Stephen Greenfield, co-founders of the Friends of
Roberts Bird Sanctuary, will share history and images of this priceless oasis of nature that
nurtures wildlife and humans alike.
