Get Involved in Desert Conservation
The Oregon Natural Desert Association’s mission is to protect, restore, and defend Oregon’s desert areas, and Oregon Desert Trail explorers are integral in these efforts.
To help us reach our conservation goals, ONDA conducts extensive wilderness inventories and science-based monitoring. Oregon Desert Trail explorers have first-hand experience of sensitive desert places that can be invaluable in our work to defend and protect these areas.
You can support ONDA’s conservation goals by:
- Joining ONDA as a member
- Subscribing to our e-newsletter and action alerts
- Signing up to be an independent steward
Connect with Fellow ODT Explorers
As our network of supporters and hikers grows, we would love to involve you as much as possible.
Want to hear about current conditions? Do you have a service you would like to offer hikers along the route? Are you looking to find a hiking partner for a section of the route? You can connect with past, current, and future ODT hikers and share your trip reports through the ODT Facebook page and Instagram profile and user forums like Reddit.
