The Bird Days of Summer: Malheur After Dark (Harney County)

Come celebrate dark skies and all things nocturnal at Malheur NWR Headquarters. This program takes visitors behind the gates to the Blitzen River Boat Launch. There, we’ll take a sunset bird walk (6:30pm-8:00pm), then look for owls, bats, and badgers (8:00pm-9:00pm), and enjoy a star viewing experience with the Oregon Observatory (9:15pm until we end!).
