Summer Interns Have Arrived!
( Photo: Director of Education Nicole Swanson working with the interns on their first day. The photo looks like everyone is just kicking back and having fun. While that is true,learning to handle our education birds and developing a solid base of trust with each bird is important.)
Summer has officially began for us at REGI. Our summer interns have arrived! Everyone has unpacked and ready for a summer of learning. This is an exciting time for all of us. The interns add a new dimension to REGI. They are always eager to learn and bring with them new ideas that add to our organization as well. We quickly become a team.
This year all of our interns are from University of Wisconsin/Stevens Point- College of Natural Resources. UWSP has a terrific program and we are very proud to be part of it.

If you call REGI this summer you may well speak to one of our fine interns.
We are off to feed babies and do more orientation but will be back to the blog soon with new patients and events.
Have a great day everyone.
