“ONDA stewardship trips inspire me. I get to learn new things and see new places, and in the process perform important work that improves the wildlife habitat.”

The desert speaks for itself, but very softly. I support ONDA to promote and enable discovery of the amazing beauty and recreational opportunities of the high desert by much broader groups of people; and most especially to protect forever the full and diverse landscape of the Owyhee Canyonlands, a place without parallel or equal in our country.”

“I came to Oregon 12 years ago from Texas. Texas, for all its size, has very little public land. Coming to Oregon has made me realize the special gift we as Americans have in our public lands. Volunteering with an organization like ONDA is my way of reciprocating for this gift. Through restoration efforts, I feel we are helping leave a better place than we found it. Through advocating for protection for public lands, we safeguard migration routes for animals and keep the land where it belongs: with the public.”

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.

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
