The Endangered Species Act was passed in 1973 to protect plants and animals from extinction, and 50 years later the High Desert Museum in Bend hosts a year-long exploration on how it has impacted the Central Oregon region. See three exhibits, including Andy Warhol’s Endangered Species: from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, now through April 7. Special programming continues throughout 2024 and includes Endangered in the High Desert, through July 7, and Wolves: Photography by Ronan Donovan, closing February 11. Museum visitors can also see animals that have made a comeback from the endangered species list such as the bald eagle, bull trout, Foskett speckled dace and peregrine falcon.
