A pair of recent grants awarded to Blue Mountain Wildlife were greatly appreciated, said Lynn Tompkins, executive director.
The funds include $12,000 from the Kinsman Foundation, which will be used for 2018 operating expenses. The other recent award was received from the Wildlife Support Charitable Trust, which provided $5,000 for 2017 operating expenses.
Both organizations, Tompkins said, are longtime supporters of BMW and wildlife rehabilitation throughout Oregon. Tompkins especially enjoyed visiting with Mark and Linda Phillips, trustees at Wildlife Support.
A nonprofit organization, Blue Mountain Wildlife’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.
