Summer Tours About to Begin!

(Former Director of Education, Nicole Swanson, gives a tour to a group in 2009.)

Summer is a busy time for all of us here at REGI. But something that we all look forward to is the start of public tours! This is something that we have been gearing up for all spring. The REGI facility takes a bit of sprucing up after a long Wisconsin winter. Luckily this year we have also had a long spring to get ready. The time has flown by and now here we are, school has just let out and we are ready to begin!

Arguably one of the most inspiring moments on a tour is when you get the chance to look a Bald Eagle in the eye. REGI tours give you the opportunity to learn about the unique adaptations that raptors have while getting closer than ever before. During each REGI tour you can expect to meet owls, eagles, falcons and hawks.

The first set of summer tours is scheduled to take place this Saturday, June 12! Tours will run from June 12 through August! (Education Director, Steve Fisher, teaches a group with educational Turkey Vulture, Morrie.)

Tours take place Tuesday, Wednesday and the 2nd Saturday of each month at 10 am and 1pm.
Tours are $5 per person and children under the age of 5 are free.
Tours are all outdoors so please come dressed for the weather.
Space is limited to 20 visitors per tour so pre-registration is required.
Call or email Molly at (715) 623-2563 to reserve your spot!

We hope to see you there!
