Join ONDA at the REI Tualatin store on October 13th to learn about visiting the Owyhee Canyonlands. ONDA's Outreach Coordinator Matt Kertman will let you know how to get there, what to bring, and the best times to go. Escape the rain and discover Oregon's hidden jewel on the east side: the Owyhee Canyonlands.
Enjoy a cold brew AND benefit high desert conservation! Craft Kitchen & Brewery is hosting a pint night on Thursday, Oct. 15. For every pint sold, Craft will donate $1 towards ONDA's effort to protect, defend, and restore Oregon's desert wildlands. Plus, don't miss music from JB Boxter. Bring a friend or two, we'll see you there. Cheers!
Difficulty Rating: 3 of 5 October 20 (Thurs. PM) to 25 (Sunday PM) ONDA will be engaging in a major replanting project looking to fundamentally and dramatically improve the habitat along the South Fork of the Crooked river. This year alone we aim to get more than 6,000 native plants into the ground, do seedings and remove juniper. And this is just the start! And to top it off, the landowner will be donating to ONDA the equivalent value of the work done: so your work not only accomplishes something lasting and important that day, but then goes on to fund other important, lasting work elsewhere in eastern Oregon. We'll need "all hands on deck" for this one.
Join the Oregon Natural Desert Association on at Deschutes Brewery on First Friday, November 6th in downtown Bend for the release of our 2016 Wild Desert Calendar!
