Join TWC Executive Director Esther Lev on a springtime tour of Malheur Wildlife refuge an 187,757 acre oasis of water in the high desert of southeast Oregon. This area is one of the premier sites for birds and birding in the US. These arid Oregon’s greatest wetlands provide livelihoods for farmers and ranchers, and critical habitat for large diversity of avian, plant and amphibian species. The spring birding is about both abundance and diversity, which makes the experience equally enjoyable for beginners and experts alike. Learn about TWC’s work with the refuge, ranchers and other conservation groups to conserve these critical wetlands. This 1.5 day tour includes lunch and ends with dinner at the Diamond Hotel.
Join us for a walk around Nyberg Wetland in Tualatin. Last year we started our Western Pond Turtle habitat enhancements. Megan Garvey, The Wetlands Conservancy Urban Land Steward, will give a short talk about our projects and guide you to see our basking platforms and turtle nesting site. There will be two tours, 11:00 am and 1:00 pm.
