New HBWI Video About Wetlands and Water
We are very excited to share with you the Harney Basin Wetlands Initiative's (HBWI) new short film on wetlands, flood irrigation, and water in Harney Basin! It took a little over two years to complete this video since Harney County was experiencing a drought when the filming was set to start.
The lands in and around the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge provide incredibly important habitat for birds on the Pacific Flyway. Harney Basin Wetlands Initiative partners give voice to the importance of these wetlands meadows, the roll water plays, and the significance of flood irrigation.
We love this short film because of the diversity of voices present, which we feel demonstrates the complexity and strength of the Harney Basin Wetlands Initiative partners. Kevin Raichl did a great job filming and producing this video. Be sure to watch it!
