Wildlife Migration


Central Oregon is rich with numerous species of native wildlife and many of these animals embark on seasonal migrations—large and small—across the landscape. Join Deschutes National Forest wildlife biologist Lauri Turner for a talk about wildlife and the local migration pathways they need to survive in our high desert. From deer and elk to wolves and mountain goats, learn about local species that migrate, the challenges they face as Central Oregon continues to grow, and ways you can help wildlife continue their seasonal journeys.
