YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS SUPPORT CHINTIMINI!
We partner with businesses of all sizes to support our mission of protecting and preserving wildlife. Here are a couple of fun examples of partnerships this month:

Emma donated 10% of the profits from her "L-Emma-nade" stand set up inside Umpqua Bank. You rock, Emma!
Allison and Evelyn had a lemonade and bracelet sale to benefit both Chintimini and Heartland Humane Society in Lilly Park, and even made some custom t-shirts! Thanks for being awesome, Allison and Evelyn!  

For more information on how your business can help make an impact on our local wildlife, please contact Sarah at            engagement@chintiminiwildlife.org
LOCAL ARTIST USES PAINTINGS TO GIVE BACK
 
Local artist Jeri Johnston Hurff has been  capturing the impressions of Oregon clouds in oils since summer 2016. Jeri belives that the clouds are "so much more than just indications of our changing weather," and he hopes "that the paintings will encourage more appreciation of the limitless variations of cloud form, texture and color." Jeri lives in Corvallis and received a BFA from Oregon State and MAT from Western Oregon University.

Jeri's paintings are being displayed at Imagine Coffee for the month of August. Jeri's last showing was at Cardwell Hill Cellars where 3 paintings were sold!

50% of art sales from the "looking up" cloud paintings will be donated to Chintimini to aide with animal rehabilitation. The other 50% of sales are dedicated to publishing "Flying Gas Cans," memoirs of a World War II veteran in the China-Burma-India theater. 
NOTABLE JULY PATIENTS
Little Brown Bats (Myotis lucifugus) - Some of the smallest mammals in our care right now, these are just 4 of 17 bat patients we are tending to every day! They were orphaned and will remain in our care until they are old enough to be released.

Red-tailed Hawk - This male is currently recovering from a vehicle collision in our ICU. He was trapped under a kayak rack and unknowingly driven all the way to Corvallis from the Bend area. Luckily, he was not seriously injured, but he still has a very long road ahead of him!

Anna's Hummingbird - It's a pretty nice life being a hummingbird, patiently awaiting a feeding every 15 minutes. This little one is a fledgling and is currently receiving care in our wildlife nursery.

Wood Duckling, Wild Turkey and Mallard Duckling - This cute trio of different species is keeping each other company in rehab. Each was found orphaned and admitted to CWC by themselves. It's never ideal to have one young animal raised by itself, so these guys are doing a great service for each other. 
Turkey Vulture - This young orphan is one of several juvenile raptor patients currently in our care.

Western Striped Skunks - Talk about some cute faces! These are just two of several orphaned skunks we are caring for right now.

Barred Owl - Another vehicle collision victim, this male owl is recovering from head trauma in our ICU.

REP PROGRAM SEES SOME HARRY POTTER!
A few weeks ago, a few representatives from our Raptor Education Program (REP) went to Movies in the Park in Salem for their Harry Potter film night and did an educational presentation about owls for over 100 audience members. Rhett the Barn Owl and Morgan the Sparred Owl made appearances, in addition to Kathleen, the REP Director; Bree, the REP Raptor Trainer; and Stephanie, a REP volunteer. It was an awesome night and we had a ton of fun being there! Thanks for having us!

This month's volunteer spotlight is Marge Reed! Marge has been with Chintimini for almost 6 years, volunteering on 5 different shifts and running our mouse program. Chintimini is so lucky to have her, and we can't thank her enough! You can read her full Volunteer Spotlight HERE.
CHINTIMINI GOES GOLFING
On Friday, July 21, Rhett the Barn Owl and his handler Kathleen (the REP Director) visited the Corvallis Chamber of Commerce Golf Scramble. We posted up at Hole #9 with Citizens Bank and cheered on the golfers! BIG THANKS to our friends at Citizen's Bank for partnering with us and allowing us to attend this great event for the first time!
