The West Virginia Wildlife Center is saying goodbye to one of its own.

Wildlife biologist Gene Thorn will retire next Thursday.

Thorn has been a wildlife biologist for 30 years with the state's division of natural resources.

He's been at the wildlife center for three years.

Thorn said he's proud of the family events he's created at the center.

"One of the goals that I had when I came here was to spiff the wildlife center up and get it to the best we possibly could with the resources we had," said Thorn.

Thorn said he would like to see future development at the wildlife center.

He plans on living on his three-generation family farm in Upshur County.
