Blue Mountain Wildlife

A barn owl, named Helen, sits with other educational birds at a presentation from Blue Mountain Wildlife during Earth Day activities at McNary Dam on Thursday in Umatilla.

Blue Mountain Wildlife is hoping to increase its volunteer efforts.

The nonprofit organization’s mission is to preserve wildlife and the habitats in which they live. Services include wildlife rehabilitation and public education. Its primary center is located five miles south of Pendleton at 71046 Appaloosa Lane, but the nonprofit takes in wildlife from around the area.

Currently they are searching for a volunteer coordinator. Executive director Lynn Tompkins said the volunteer position would require a person who possesses some free time as well as organizational and people skills.
