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 you can get involved too!
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 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!
Interested in giving your high desert adventure a purpose? This program offers volunteers a self directed opportunity to contribute to important stewardship work to restore Oregon's high desert apart from ONDA’s group stewardship trips.
ONDA's Stewardship Program seeks two summer interns to help conduct public lands monitoring, lead volunteer restoration trips and develop a photo-monitoring database. Ideal candidates will have strong backcountry skills and familiarity with Microsoft Office tools.
