Edythe Marshall Memorial Bench

Many of you may know that Edythe Marshall and her husband Harold gifted their property (Marshall Farms) to MSU to be used to support research and educational programs. Edythe loved hummingbirds and she maintained at least a dozen feeders at her house. As a tribute to her, KBS has decided to include a memorial bench in her honor near the pollinator gardens at the Bird Sanctuary.
