Barb is 17 years old and has been a volunteer with NWWR for 3 years. She has spent many hours at our center, feeding and caring for our sick, injured and orphaned animals. She is currently working with "Chas", a barred owl who will be joining us as a "program" animal. (A program animal is an animal which has been trained to help with our activities like festivals and other educational programs.) The training consists of learning to sit on a perch and a glove and getting used to people being close. Not all animals can do this! Chas is not able to be released because of a dislocated wing. Falling later created scar tissue so he is permanently unable to fly.
Thank you to Barb and our other hardworking volunteers.
