As of Sept. 4, Chanda Stone is the new executive director at the Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. Stone attended California State University for her undergraduate studies in geography and natural resource management and attended Portland State University for her graduate work in geography and urban forestry. Stone went on to work two years with the City of Portland and 14 years with the City of Tualatin as a restoration coordinator and a volunteer administrator. Over her tenure at the cities, her program was responsible for the planting over 40,000 native trees and shrubs along riparian habitats.
“We are very happy to find an executive director that was already living on the island with the skill set that we need,” said Marc Brown, Wolf Hollow Board president. “Please join us in welcoming her.”
Six years ago Stone moved to Saudi Arabia with her family for her spouse’s career. Surprisingly, she had the unique opportunity to work in the Arab kingdom, teaching the gardening department how to properly trim trees and spearheading a xeriscape project on the compound. As all the water used is desalinated, using less water has a big impact on the health of the Arabian Gulf. Stone and her family are very happy to be back in the Pacific Northwest.
“I am very excited and lucky to have the opportunity to work with Wolf Hollow. I look forward to continuing the great work that the center does every day, saving and releasing wildlife,” said Stone. “I look forward to working with the staff, board, volunteers and donors as we move into the future together.”
As Wolf Hollow moves into the fall, many projects will be taking place around the center such as habitat repair and aviary construction. They are also in need of fresh or frozen raw unseasoned beef, goat, sheep, chicken, fish or venison. For info, firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-378-5000 for more information.
