So proud of ONDA and its members and volunteers. Such hard work gets done. To use an overused word, this is patriotism!

Bitteroot blooms on north-facing cliffs in western North America.

The Paiute name for bitteroot is kangedya. Traditional Native American uses of the plant included eating the roots, mixed with berries and meat, and using the roots to treat sore throats.
