We are proud to announce our Executive Director, Marge Gibson, was named one of the "persons of the decade" in North-Central Wisconsin. On Sunday, January 31, the Wausau Daily Herald published a special section honoring 50 people in our region who have been influential and have had a important, positive impact during the past decade. (link below) We here at REGI are proud and happy that Marge Gibson was included in that select group. We know how hard Marge works and how deeply passionate she is about birds. We know that she is committed to the importance of education, using the birds as ambassadors and educational partners to explain the environmental issues affecting all of us. We see her work tirelessly to promote understanding of problems that all birds encounter, and to compassionately care for each individual bird brought to REGI with her unique, caring expertise.
