The Harney Basin Wetlands Collaborative will once again lead a number of studies at the lake this summer in year two of a two-year study to gather enough data to formulate a plan to restore Malheur Lake to a clear-water state.

It's spring which means it's time for the annual John Scharff Migratory Bird Festival April 21-24 during which the spring show put on by migratory birds
is a stunner. Thousands and thousands of birds will pass through this area as they migrate up the Pacific Flyway to their nesting grounds in Canada. These include, among many others, Northern pintails, mallards, American wigeon, sandhill cranes, tundra swans and two different species of white geese. One of these species, the Ross’s goose, is notable in its journey.
