Oregon’s high desert is an arid landscape, defined by the scarcity of water, but that does not mean that this vast landscape is without water. It means that every stream, creek, spring and river matters.
In the face of biodiversity loss and climate change, public lands and waters in eastern Oregon’s sagebrush sea offer a chance to stem the tide. Conserving these natural areas would ensure a future for fish and wildlife, preserve connected, resilient landscapes, safeguard the region’s rich cultural and historic resources, and provide recreational opportunities for generations to come.
This short documentary takes you to to Lake Abert, the John Day River Basin and the Owyhee Canyonlands and highlights how Oregon Natural Desert Association is preserving the desert’s most precious resource.
