Volunteer Work: Since 1995 Ms. Callaghan has volunteered at Chintimini Wildlife Center in Corvallis, where she trains and works with birds of prey, including a Red-tailed Hawk and a Great-horned Owl.  Chintimini Wildlife Center treats over 1,000 injured and orphaned animals a year, giving them medical care so they can be released back into the wild. They treat mammals, birds, and reptiles; everything from bobcats and foxes to bald eagles, hummingbirds, and even turtles, snakes, and bats.  Their Education Program fosters a connection between people and wildlife using birds of prey that, due to permanent injuries, are non-releasable because they could not survive in the wild.  Visit their website here: Chintimini Wildlife Center
