Due to a staffing shortage, Willamalane will need to delay the start date of our Friendly Finches and Ready Robins programs.

If you have enrolled in either of these, you will remain enrolled in the program, and your spot will be saved. Credits for September will be issued to those who have already paid for this program. If you wish to receive a refund, please contact the front desk directly at 541-736-4544 as soon as possible. We will open these programs as soon as staff is available, and give you adequate notice of the new start date. We understand that this will be a burden on our community, and we’re going to do everything possible to open these sites soon. We'll post updated information on this page.
