It could be one of the best-kept wildlife secrets in Oregon. For this week’s Great Outdoors, Brian Jennings takes us to the Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge in southeastern Oregon.

Andi and Ed Buerger’s mission was to create a refuge for at risk and homeless youth. Beulah’s Place was named after Ed’s deceased mother, who’s love has transcended to these young adults, and the biblical land, Beulah, which is a place between heaven and earth, kind of like their home. It’s a temporary safe house where kids can get the resources they need to transition into a happy, healthy adult life.
Wildlife biologist and President of the Friends of Malheur, Gary Ivey, is anxious for the staff of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to get back to work.
