Let Oregon’s elected leaders know: It’s time to protect the Owyhee!

Devin Dahlgren   Website

The Owyhee Canyonlands are the wildest stretch of Oregon’s high desert. It is the largest unprotected expanse of public lands in the Lower 48. And, the time to protect this remarkable wild place is now.

A bill that would protect more than 1 million acres of the most important ecological, cultural and recreational resources in the Owyhee is making its way through Congress. We are closer than ever to seeing this remarkable place protected for current and future generations. 

As someone who loves Oregon’s desert, it’s up to you.  

With your help, ONDA will keep working with our Senators, Representatives and our community throughout the many steps in this process to ensure the final bill does right by one of our last, best wild places. To follow this landscape protection effort, subscribe to ONDA’s e-newsletter.
