Nature Night: Malheur, One Year Later says
At this time last year, you were helping us fight for Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and our public lands. We hope you'll join us on February 15 at Montgomery Park for a special Nature Night looking at Malheur, one year later.

This panel discussion, presented by Portland Audubon and the High Desert Partnership, will bring together representatives from a variety of interests, including conservation groups, the Harney County Commission, the Burns Paiute Tribe, and Malheur Refuge staff, who have been working to restore the refuge and surrounding landscape to health, and bridge divides that too often separate our urban and rural communities. Even at the height of the occupation, these groups were working together on a collaborative vision to light a path forward.

Peter Harkema, director of Oregon Consensus Project, will moderate a discussion about the work occurring on and around the refuge and the challenging issues being addressed. Come get an inside look at how these disparate parties have come together to work on some of the most important restoration projects on one of the most challenging landscapes in the western United States.

When: February 15, 2017
6 p.m.: Doors open. Light hors d’oeuvres provided by High Desert Partnership.
7 p.m.: Presentation and panel discussion

Where: Montgomery Park, 2701 NW Vaughn St, Portland, OR 97210
