Volunteers are the heart of our efforts
Hard-working ONDA volunteers have planted thousands of trees, restored dozens of miles of streams, decommissioned old roads and removed enough barbed wire to stretch from one end of Oregon to the other. They've also toiled endlessly in our offices, written letters, attended meetings and events, all toward one goal: giving our deserts a voice.
Learn how your can get involved too!
In the Field
Stewardship and Restoration: Every year, ONDA offers into some of the most scenic landscapes in Oregon's high desert. With activities including removing fence, planting trees, surveying potential wilderness areas and monitoring sage grouse breeding grounds, there is an ONDA trip fit for desert lovers of all abilities and ages. Best of all, most trips are FREE, so join ONDA today to get in on the fun!
Independent Stewards: Interested in giving your high desert adventure a purpose? ...offers volunteers a more self directed means for aiding important efforts toward promoting a healthy high desert outside of ONDA’s structured, guided stewardship trips.
Internship Opportunities: Coming soon!
Office and event volunteers are the best! ONDA relies on volunteers in our Bend and Portland offices to assist with administrative tasks and outreach events. Support Oregon's desert with a gift of time. Fill out our volunteer info form and today for current opportunities.
