Malheur & the Harney Basin (presentation)

Friday 3:00 PM-4:00 PM
Trip# 263: Malheur & the Harney Basin (presentation)
Description: In the northwestern corner of the Great Basin, the 140,000-acre Malheur National Wildlife Refuge provides an oasis for wildlife in southeastern Oregon's high desert. For eons, Malheur's expansive wetlands drained into the alkali sink known as Harney Lake. The refuge supports an abundance of wildlife, but the hypersaline Harney Lake only hosts the well-adapted brine shrimp. Despite it's seemingly bleak existence, Harney Lake has a story to tell.
