Paul G. Dye, the founder of the Northwest Wildlife Farm in Washington has passed away at age 68. Founded in 1971, wild bird sanctuary and breeding center includes 32 ponds, 8 acres of grain fields, about 4 miles of trails, a salmon stream, forestry improvements for grouse, a wildlife garden and about 5 acres of aviaries.
