“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.”

“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.”

Make Your Voice Heard For Public Lands

Each day Oregon’s elected leaders and the appointed officials who head land management agencies make decisions about how our lands are managed. They need to hear your voice on these important issues.

Here is our advice for connecting with these decision-makers.

Make it relevant and personal—remind them that you’re a constituent and tell them why public lands are important to important to you personally and to other people in their district or state.

Don’t forget the ask—your request can be general, like “please stand up for public lands and make sure they stay in public hands,” or better yet, refer to a specific bill or issue you’re concerned about.

Here is their contact information.
