The Friends of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is eager for the Spring to spring and are cautiously preparing for the possibility of reopening the Crane’s Nest Nature Store. When the store does open we will have a special treat for our visitors.

In April 2006 Linda Whiting opened Designs By Linda Art Studio & Gift Shop on her family ranch just east of Burns. She has been painting and creating for over 40 years and will now be selling custom Malheur designs at the Crane’s Nest Nature Store.

Working with Friends Director, Janelle, for content topics and ideas Linda is curating a collection of hand sewn wall hanging tapestries and hand painted and beaded ornaments. These wall hangings will come in a variety of square and landscape layouts and sizes to fit any space! Linda’s ornaments are a great gift or memento for any occasion. Each piece is created with Linda’s personal touch and attention to detail.

Faux leather painted and beaded ornaments: $20.00 – $22.00
Hanging tapestries will vary in price from $45.00 – $98.00 depending on size and detail.
