Watch out for Wildlife: Film Screening & Panel Discussion

Wildlife, such as deer and elk, face challenges everyday while trying to navigate a landscape altered by humans. Join us for a critical look at the intersection of transportation and wildlife migration through a series of documentaries and a discussion with key partners working on behalf of wildlife conservation. This program is presented in partnership with Protecting Animal Migration (PAM), Oregon Department of Transportation, Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife, and the Deschutes National Forest.
