Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is one of the most important bird refuges in the United States. The illegal armed occupation has increased awareness of this incredible place, the wildlife that depends on it, and the community that surrounds it. Portland Audubon's relationship with the refuge dates back to its founding in 1902. Important work to support the refuge has been occurring even during the armed occupation and will continue long after the occupation is nothing more than a bad memory.
Today, Portland Audubon's connection to the refuge remains strong. We fund an avian intern at Malheur every spring. We actively participate in the development and implementation of Malheur's long-term management plan. We have worked directly with refuge staff on developing avian monitoring programs. We are an active participant in the Harney Basin Wetlands Initiative which brings together many stakeholders including the local community, tribes, conservation groups and local, state and federal agencies, all committed to improving the ecological health of the refuge and the surrounding lands.
