“I connect with Oregon’s high desert through my feet, my eyes, my sense of smell, and all the things I hear. Getting out there is a whole body experience.” Supporting ONDA, Helen says, not only connects her with wild landscapes, but is also a good investment. “I felt like if I gave them $20, they might squeeze $23 out of it.”

Every donation, advocacy action, and volunteer hour adds up to an incredible investment in a healthy, promising future for Oregon’s desert landscapes, waterways, and wildlife. Please review Oregon Natural Desert Association’s recent financial information for insight into the scope of your giving and the essential programs these contributions support.

Donor Spotlight: Helen Harbin

You’re sure to see Helen Harbin smiling and mingling at ONDA events and volunteer trips.

Helen has long devoted her immense talent by serving on ONDA’s board -- including seven years as board chair -- using her corporate experience to better the organization. She’s also always ready to lend a hand, whether pulling fence in the field or going on film as one of the Sagebrush Sisters. We can’t thank Helen enough for her devoting her dedication and know-how to the high desert.


“I believe we will protect the Owyhee Canyonlands ...

ONDA has always persevered, and I think that's what will carry the day. In the meantime, I hope to protect this striking place from degradation until we win final permanent protection.”- David Johns
