A Night w/ Friends

October 7 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


The Friends of Malheur NWR are kicking off National Wildlife Refuge Celebration Week with an evening of fun in honor of Malheur NWR and the mystical dark skies that blanket the Refuge. Did you know that Malheur NWR lies beneath the largest contiguous expanse of dark skies in the lower 48? This little known fact is gaining attention from scientists, naturalists, and creatives alike. Join us in honoring this with messages three such individuals!

Ellen Waterston, Award winning Poet, Author, and Writing Instructor

Scott Fisher, Pine Mountain Observatory Director

Bill Kowalik, International Dark Skies – Oregon Board Chair

Enjoy these passionate and knowledgeable speakers in addition to a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, and one FREE drink ticket per attendee! 

COST: FREE! Donations welcome. We want to encourage our Friends to come out, socialize, and Celebrate! But bring your checkbook or credit card because the auction will be enticing, and all proceeds support the Friends ongoing work at Malheur NWR.

Want to stay overnight? A Block of rooms has been reserved for our Friends in the Ed House at McMenamins Old St Francis School. Group Block Code is 2310FRIEND.
