Malheur for Dummies

Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in southeast Oregon is a special place, for so many reasons and for so many people. It seems to have an indelible effect on visitors, as evidenced by the small but dedicated group of birders, naturalists and solitude-seekers that for decades have made annual or semi-annual pilgrimages to the place. First-time visitors to the area tend to come away awed, even reverent, and eager to return.

Here are some common-sense tips on how to make the most of your visit, whether you are a Malheur neophyte or a dust-bitten, sun-wizened high-desert devotee.
