Bitteroot blooms on north-facing cliffs in western North America.

The Paiute name for bitteroot is kangedya. Traditional Native American uses of the plant included eating the roots, mixed with berries and meat, and using the roots to treat sore throats.

Restoration is hard slow work. It takes hold, or it doesn’t, in fits and starts. The immensity of the need can be discouraging, but we must carry on. I am so thankful ONDA carries on.

ONDA alerts our members and supporters whenever opportunities to support public lands arise.

You can sign up for our e-newsletter to find out when and how to submit your comments on public lands issues, or when your elected official will be hosting a town hall meeting held by your member of Congress. But, you don’t have to wait for a specific opportunity to take action.

Here are five ways that you can take action for your lands at any time:

Explore. Get out and enjoy your public lands with friends and family. Discover new places to explore in Oregon’s high desert.

Share. Tell others in your community about the wild places you love and why they need protection.

Engage. Contact your elected leaders to tell them why public lands in Oregon’s high desert matter to you. Write a letter, make a phone call, or send an email to your members of Congress. Ask them what they’re doing to help protect public lands in Oregon’s high desert.

Amplify. Write a letter to the editor of your local paper to amplify your voice and let others know about public lands and why they’re important to you and others in your community.

Give. Member support makes ONDA an effective advocate for public lands. Make a contribution, or become a monthly donor, to ensure your public lands get the protection they deserve.
