Volunteers are the heart of our efforts

Opportunities to volunteer with ONDA include desert restoration field trips to remove fence, plant trees, inventory wilderness, help out at events, and a variety of office work in our Bend and Portland locations.

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.

Opportunities for you!


Restoration Trips:

Every year, ONDA offers dozens of volunteer trips to some of the most scenic landscapes in Oregon's high desert. With different projects that include 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! CLICK HERE FOR TRIP DETAILS.
