Conservation in Oregon’s High Desert Needs You

ONDA offers a multitude of ways to get involved in the conservation of Oregon's high desert.

You can sign up for a fence pull, or other volunteer restoration work where you will see the immediate impact of your hard work as you look back upon a wide-open landscape freed of the encumbrances of barbed wire. You may even be lucky enough to watch a herd of fleet-footed pronghorn antelope as they flow over a prairie of sagebrush that, thanks to your efforts, is no longer a deadly barrier for wildlife.

You can take action
to make sure that elected officials know how important Oregon’s deserts are to our quality of life and how many Oregonians love the wild landscapes that surround our communities.

Our efforts to protect the Oregon Badlands Wilderness could never have been successful without over 3,000 letters sent to Senator Wyden asking him to take the lead or the business owners (over two-hundred strong!) who spoke out in support of conservation.
