“I support ONDA on a monthly basis as a way I can keep in touch with the root of my conservation ethic and allow for their strong advocacy work to keep going. I count on them!”

“ONDA stewardship trips inspire me. I get to learn new things and see new places, and in the process perform important work that improves the wildlife habitat.”

“I contribute to ONDA monthly because it adds up to a larger annual gift than what I’d be able to comfortably afford if I were to do a simple one-time donation annually. I’m able to give more to ONDA this way and have greater impact which is important to me, and my dog Polly.”

Some of the films are serious, some are lighthearted and each features a different beautiful wild place, traveling the world with stops in Nepal, Patagonia, Alaska and, of course, Oregon. And, what is the common thread that ties these ten far-flung films together? All will inspire you to explore and protect the natural world.

The film festival, presented by Bend-based E2 Solar, is a benefit for ONDA. Learn more about the event at ONDA.org/wsff.
