Clearly, even after the takeover ends there will be a period of time when the refuge will remain closed for investigations and other efforts.

Once those efforts are complete, we hope the reopening of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge will be as soon as possible so that the critical business of protecting America’s public lands and wildlife can resume. And we’re asking you to help in that effort: Join us by committing to volunteer your time toward restoration of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service managers will face the daunting task of restoring refuge operations, repairing damage done by the illegal takeover and continuing to provide important habitat for the many bird and animal species that rely on the refuge. Like millions of Americans, we want to help restore the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and support the Harney County community.

Every year, ONDA’s Stewardship Program works with hundreds of volunteers to restore areas of Oregon’s high desert, including projects on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. As we all move forward together to restore the refuge it will be critical to coordinate volunteer efforts with refuge managers. ONDA is committed to coordinating with refuge managers and volunteers to ensure a successful and smooth volunteer restoration effort.

Please join us today. Pledge to volunteer your time toward the restoration of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

ONDA will contact volunteers as project opportunities are identified and coordinated with Malheur National Wildlife Refuge managers.

If you are unable to volunteer your time and effort but wish to express your support for the refuge and the Harney County community, please consider a contribution to the Friends of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge or the Harney District Hospital CAN Cancer program.
