Various attractions are beginning to open up for the summer months, as people plan their visits to Central Oregon. The High Desert Museum gets thousands of visitors each year, both locally and from all over the world, because of their unique exhibits. Communications Manager Cathy Carroll says the month of May features some very popular events: "Raptors of the Desert Sky is going to be a really unique way of seeing raptors in flight. You’ll take a short walk out into a natural forest clearing and there will be hawks and owls and other raptors that will be soaring all around you and there will also be experts there who will help you understand more about these birds." Carroll says they are also presenting speakers on the conflict with wolves, and Doctor Marcus Eriksen will talk about his sailing trip across the Pacific in his boat made of junk and plastic bottles.
