Refuge Trees: Homestead Era Oases at Malheur NWR
February 6, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The High Desert Museum will offer a Natural History Pub presentation at McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St., in Bend.
Old stands of largely cottonwood trees grow within Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Eastern Oregon. Although these trees are not native to the region, many of the over 340 species of birds that visit Malheur annually depend on these trees to nest, feed, and rest. Join Janelle Wicks, Director of the Friends of Malheur NWR, to learn about the group’s work to assess the historical and ecological value for the Refuge’s wildlife and the work being done to ensure a future that supports a wildlife oasis in the high desert.
Attendance is free and open to the public, but the museum requests those interested to register for the event.
