The World of Haystack Rock – “Lifecycle and Rehabilitation of the Common Murre”

Joshua Saranpaa, the director of the Wildlife Center of the North Coast (WCNC), will be presenting “Lifecycle and Rehabilitation of the Common Murre.”

Josh was born and raised in rainy Astoria, Oregon.  He started volunteering with the Wildlife Center during high school in the summer of 2008.  In 2010, he received his ODFW State Wildlife Rehabilitator’s Permit and began working, on a volunteer basis, as the Assistant Director of the Wildlife Center.  In 2015, Josh was appointed Executive Director of the WCNC following the death of Sharnelle Fee, the Founder and Director of WCNC.

When not working, Josh enjoys spending his free time in nature with his wife, Kimberly, and his crazy dog, Puffin.

The WCNC is a registered non-profit 501(c)3 based in Astoria, Oregon.  The WCNC mission is “promoting compassion, empathy, and respect for all life through wildlife rehabilitation, ecological teachings, and wildlife conservation.”

This is a free event at the library and open to the public.
