REGI has been bringing birds to Klondike Days for many years. It is one of the highlights of the year. As educators we thrive on sharing our love of birds. There is no better way to spend the day than talking with hundreds of people about the birds that we have out on the glove.

We spent both Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am-4:00pm sharing our birds with a public. When we ended each day we were exhausted, hoarse from talking, and completely happy. Saturday Steve and Evelyn Fisher started off the weekend and Karissa Mohr and I spent Sunday presenting and wrapped up the weekend.

If you missed the chance to see us at Klondike Days, we have another program just around the corner! Karissa Mohr and I will be presenting at the Science Extravaganza at SPASH in Stevens Point this Saturday. The science extravaganza is a student driven science fair with science activities, demonstrations and lots of fun.
