ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Explore this unique part of the northern Great Basin in remote southeast Oregon, while studying its bounty of spectacular wildflowers and associated butterflies. Amid this beautiful landscape, enjoy the fertile marshlands of the Malheur refuge, meet fascinating inhabitants of this vast high desert and join expert-led discussions and identification reviews in classrooms and museums.
