Malheur Big Sit 2024

Celebrate International Migratory Bird Day at our third annual Malheur Big Sit. This is an accessible, inclusive outing and BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, and beginning birders and bird-enthusiasts are welcome. Bring chairs, blankets, or whatever your seating preferences are. Participants are encouraged to arrive any time between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m., and to stay for as long as they are comfortable/interested. At 10 a.m. we’ll break out doughnuts and warm beverages. We will have some gluten-free and non-dairy treats available as well. There will be space to spread out at Malheur HQ, and for shifting views and positions while you’re birding with us. Lastly, we will have activities for youth available for the duration of the event. There are two bathrooms located at headquarters, including one ADA compliant bathroom.

Accessibility: There is a paved path from the parking lot at Malheur HQ, throughout headquarters. This path has a slight decline from the parking lot. There are many benches and picnic tables available for seating and a large deck great for viewing birds and Malheur Lake from.
