Nature Night: Peter Walker presents “Sagebrush Collaboration: How Harney County Defeated the Takeover of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge”

Author and University of Oregon Professor Peter Walker takes us back to the contentious 41-day takeover of Malheur Wildlife Refuge in 2016, revealing an unmatched account of the takeover itself to how the power of people standing together overcame the armed militants. We will also feature a special Malheur update from Bird Alliance of Oregon Conservation Director, Bob Sallinger.

About Nature Night
Bird Alliance of Oregon’s Speaker Series returns with a set of interesting topics and engaging speakers that will be sure to draw the masses. While the Series will remain free to attend, we highly encourage a suggested donation of $5-$20 from those who are able. This helps cover venue and speaker fees and keeps Nature Night financially sustainable.
