Celebrate Fall with Central Oregon Events

It’s time to celebrate the turning of the leaves, the crisp air, and even cheer on the first snowflakes of the year! We have a variety of events over the next month that are fun, educational, and inspiring and we hope you can get outside (and inside) with us to learn more about the wild places and wildlife that we experience regularly here in Bend. Enjoy the fleeting time we call autumn with some Oregon Wild events. Hopefully this makes those shorter days feel worthwhile!

What the Media Missed About Malheur

A year ago, a band of militants descended on a National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, and with them came a cadre of national reporters. National reports were often simplistic, neglecting important nuances to the story and left readers and viewers with poor understanding of facts on the ground.

While local coverage by several Oregon outlets was more thorough and provided analysis, the one-year anniversary of the Malheur occupation provides an opportunity to reflect on key elements of the saga that flew under the radar.

Elliott State Forest sale halted... for now

We did it! 

Thanks to your voice, thousands of other Oregon Wild activists, partner organizations, and many more who have been working on this issue for years, the State Land Board delayed their vote on a proposal to privatize the Elliott State Forest. 

But we are not out of the woods yet!

Find Your Adventure!

We joke that Shasta’s office looks like Christmas morning. As we’ve gotten closer to this year’s Call of the Wild, it’s filled up with all the amazing donated prize packages that will be up for auction at the event. I’ll occasionally drop by Shasta’s office, as will other staff, to paw through the latest goodies.
