“My greatest hope is that Oregon’s desert continues to gain public lands protections, and is guarded from unsustainable development, so that future generations may benefit from all the region has to offer.

I felt inspired by trips to Oregon’s high desert, and was actively searching for ways to contribute to the protection of these wild places. ONDA stood out as a leader in this respect, and when I’ve had money to contribute, ONDA has been a clear choice.”

Frequently Asked Questions

A: Nope! A gift of any size will begin or renew your ONDA membership. Your membership will be current one year past your last gift date.

Consider becoming a monthly donor—you’ll sustain desert conservation initiatives year-round and you’ll no longer receive paper renewal notices in the mail! ONDA can also send you a digital copy of our Desert Ramblings newsletter if you prefer. Email to share your preference.

A: Yes, that would be amazing. Please see our Give page for details or contact ONDA Development Director Allison Crotty at
