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. And, after a Senate hearing last week, 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. Please take a moment now to let our elected leaders know how much the Owyhee matters 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.

So glad we got to do a stewardship trip with ONDA this summer, and now I’m more inspired than ever to start hiking the Oregon Desert Trail in bits and pieces.
