Blue Mountain Wildlife recently enjoyed visitors from Minamisoma, Japan.

Six exchange students and their interpreter, who are part of a Pendleton sister city program, visited the center this past week. Lynn Tompkins, executive director at Blue Mountain Wildlife, said Nicole, one of their interns, had a great opportunity to practice her Japanese while conversing with the visitors.

Blue Mountain Wildlife is a nonprofit organization whose 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.
