Friends of the Refuge Volunteers staff the store and visitor information desk in the Wildlife Refuge. We are always looking for interested volunteers to assist in these activities.

What's flying off the Shelves at Nature's Overlook?
We have an exciting new vendor at our store in the Wildlife Center. Gene Mulkey of Newberg carves and paints beautiful and realistic bird sculptures. We have just begun carrying some of his artistic masterpieces. We’re also hoping that Gene will come to demonstrate his talent during this year’s Tualatin River Bird Festival.
