The lecture on February 13 will be lead by Joshua Saranpaa discussing Lifecycle and Rehabilitation of the Common Murre. Joshua is the Executive Director of the Wildlife Center of the North Coast. Josh was born and raised in rainy Astoria, Oregon.  He started volunteering with the Wildlife Center in the summer of 2008—the summer between his sophomore and junior year of high school.  In 2010, he tested for, and received his ODFW State Wildlife Rehabilitator’s Permit, and was working, on a volunteer basis, as the Assistant Director of the facility.  September of 2015, Josh was appointed Executive Director of WCNC following the death of long-time Director and Founder, Sharnelle Fee.  When not working, Josh enjoys spending his free time in nature with his wife Kimberly, and his crazy dog Puffin.
