Rally for Malheur and Public Lands

We would like to invite you to join us on Tuesday, January 19 at 12 p.m. at Holladay Park near Lloyd Center to show your support for Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and public lands across the United States.

The illegal, armed occupation of Malheur puts one of America’s most important wildlife refuges at risk and threatens years of collaborative work between the refuge, local community, conservation organizations, the Paiute and others. (Click here to see our official statement.) Bird Alliance of Oregon has been working to protect Malheur since our founding in 1902 when Bird Alliance of Oregon’s first president, William Finley, helped inspire President Theodore Roosevelt to create Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. It is now time to speak out for Malhuer and our public lands across the United States again. We need your voice!

Rally for Malheur and Public Lands in Portland, Eugene, Bend and Beyond

Join us in locations across the state (listed below) to gather and peacefully express your appreciation for Malheur, national public lands, their public servant caretakers, and the positive collaborative efforts between refuge officials, ranchers, environmentalists, and the Burns-Paiute Tribe that have been underway on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

Speakers will highlight the importance of protecting special places like the Malheur NWR that provide integral wildlife habitat, clean water, climate change mitigation, and recreational opportunities available as a benefit to all Americans.

Participants are strongly encouraged to RSVP by clicking here to register to receive up to date information and other information about how they can support Malheur and public lands.  Also check our website or our Restore MalheurFacebook page for regularly updated information on the Malheur situation and rally.

We know many of you are concerned about the illegal occupation. Let’s make our voices heard at rallies in Portland and across the state.
