Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Closed

Wading Sandhill CraneMalheur National Wildlife Refuge is still closed — for a bit longer.

We are relieved that the illegal occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is over. While we are now able to look forward to a new beginning, there is still much that needs to be done so that the community and the larger public can be welcomed back to their refuge. We will be available, at the request of the FBI, to help in the long and painstaking job of processing the crime scene. At the same time, we will be working to assess and repair damages caused by the occupation. Above all, we will begin to revitalize our deep connections in the local community and resume the dialog that has made Malheur a model of collaborative conservation.
