High Desert Lecture Series: Shane Von Schlemp and thru-hiking the Oregon Desert Trail

March 11, 2015

In the second installment of ONDA’s new High Desert Lecture Series, veteran long-distance hiker Shane Von Schlemp shares his experience becoming one of a half dozen people to through-hike the new Oregon Desert Trail.


Hart Mountain Lek Monitoring

March 19, 2015

Difficulty Rating: 3 out of 5 This trip is repeatedly one of ONDA's most popular, but unlike last year there will be only one Lek monitoring trip in 2015. Join us for three mornings of waking up long before dawn to watch these incredible birds strut their stuff as the sun rises over the distant Steens Mountain. The data collected on this trip will be used for sage grouse research and management both at Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge and in the greater Great Basin.
