“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.”

Bobcat

Bobcat

Found only in North America, where it is the most common wildcat, the bobcat takes its common name from its stubby, or “bobbed,” tail. The cats range in length from two to four feet and weigh 14 to 29 pounds. Bobcats mainly hunt rabbits and hares, but they will also eat rodents, birds, bats, and even adult deer.

Latin name: Lynx rufus fasciatus

 


Our Seasonal Staff and Interns

Interns

Our wildlands interns spend the summer in the field with ONDA staff and volunteers. Our development interns help ONDA to reach community members interested in getting involved in ONDA’s work by managing ONDA event and publications logistics and representing ONDA at community events. Our Hillis internships offer students and young professionals opportunities to join us for a variety of important projects.  

Tribal Stewards

The Tribal Stewards Program offers paid positions to indigenous young adults who spend the summer in the field restoring streams, uplands and trails across Oregon’s desert lands while gaining practical restoration and research experience and exploring conservation career pathways.
