Training available to handle oiled birds

It’s a not well understood issue with the public, that if there were an oil spill, that most volunteers could be turned away without proper training. Getting this training now would allow you to be put to work helping when it would be most needed. Here’s your chance!


Attached is registration information for the 2012 oiled wildlife class series, to be held June 2 and June 23 at the Clallam County Fairgrounds. The classes, sponsored by the Clallam Marine Resources Committee and Surfrider, offer training to volunteers who want to be able to help wildlife in the event of an oil spill. Actual wildlife (well, domesticated wildlife – ducks, actually) will be a part of the training – nothing like hands-on experience to make it real.

8-hour Hazwoper certification is required to take these classes. Class limit is 24 people per class.

You will receive a confirmation email once you have registered. You can click on the link in the pdf file, or directly on the link below:

Please call or write with any questions. I look forward to seeing you at oiled wildlife recovery class!

Thank you
