Goals for the New Year

Each new year presents new opportunities to pursue our vision for Oregon’s high desert as a place where eight million acres of conserved public lands provide essential habitat for fish and wildlife, and wild places exist for all people to treasure and explore, now and always.

Check out the photos below to see what ONDA’s top priorities for 2021 are:

“I contribute to ONDA monthly because it adds up to a larger annual gift than what I’d be able to comfortably afford if I were to do a simple one-time donation annually. I’m able to give more to ONDA this way and have greater impact which is important to me, and my dog Polly.”
