Malheur Field Station
Malheur Field Station is an environmental education and research center in the northern Great Basin region in Southeastern Oregon operated by the Great Basin Society, a 501(3)(c) organization founded in 1985. The field station provides public lectures, accredited and non-accredited courses, professional development workshops and scout projects. It also hosts individuals, groups, families, birding groups and K–12 school groups. A member-based consortium of northwest universities, colleges and education organizations guides the academic programs.
The field station is 32 miles south of Burns on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, a diverse setting of marshlands, desert basins, alkali playas, upland desert scrub steppe, volcanic and glacial landforms and fault block mountains, providing a rich outdoor classroom for the biologist, geologist, archaeologist, artist, astronomer or environmental science student.
Accommodations, ranging from dormitories and kitchenettes to trailers and recreational vehicle hook-ups, can be arranged. The field station’s Natural History Museum exhibits and bookstore are open to the public.
