Public Land Leaders

Greg Burke   Website

Our Public Land Leaders program makes it simple and fun for you to talk with your friends and family about public lands in Oregon’s high desert and encourage others to speak up for our land. By becoming a Public Land Leader in your community, you can help grow the chorus of voices speaking up on behalf of our public lands.

There is a point in the Owyhee region, in northwestern Nevada, that is, at 115 miles away, as far away as you can get from a McDonalds in the U.S.

“It feels good to support ONDA on a monthly basis, because I know they never stop supporting our public lands. ONDA works to help make our lands a better place for the future, and I feel like I’m a part of that every month with my support.”

Let us make leading easy

You don’t need to be an expert to lead a discussion about public lands, and you don’t need to stress about the planning.

We’ll send you a helpful checklist of the steps to hosting a get-together with friends.

To thank you for your leadership, we will even cover the cost of your first get-together! You read that right—you get your friends together to talk about public lands, and the food and drinks are on us!

Our toolkit includes postcards and letter writing worksheets, several copies of our guide to public lands in Oregon’s high desert and a handbook with a framework for leading a fun and productive discussion about public lands.
