Nestled deep in the John Day River Basin lies one of Oregon's most awe inspiring landscapes. Rich in paleontological resources, teeming with wildlife and over-brimming with opportunities for primitive recreation, the Sutton Mountain Wilderness Proposal lands are a must experience for one and all.
The Sutton Mountain Wilderness Proposal has been vetted by local landowners, residents and business owners in Wheeler County, many of whom are supportive of new wilderness and the consolidation of public lands. In addition, this proposal has gained the support of the whitewater rafting and boating communities, the Redmond Chapter of Oregon Hunters Association, and other hunting, angling, rafting and conservation groups.
ONDA continues to work with the communities of Wheeler County and residents across Oregon to ensure that this incredible area receives the permanent protection it so rightly deserves.
