ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
The ecologically rich wetlands and undisturbed terrain of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge are a birder’s paradise. Here you can find an amazing concentration of ibis, pelicans, cranes, shorebirds, herons and waterfowl. In spring, the foothills, pine forests and deserts are filled with the songs of landbirds including colorful Lazuli Buntings, Bullock’s Orioles and Western Tanagers. In fall, the autumn migrations are in full swing with 140-plus species passing through.


Highlights

• Search for Oregon’s majestic birdlife and take part in expert-led interpretation and discussion during five full days in the field.
• Lively evening presentations delve deeper into bird anatomy, ecology, conservation and behavior.
• Chances for seeing rare vagrants here are high!
