Act Now to Protect Oregon’s Owyhee Canyonlands

Mark Lisk

Oregon Natural Desert Association and a broad coalition of partners are calling on President Biden and Senators Wyden and Merkley to establish an Owyhee Canyonlands National Monument. Act now to help protect the rushing rivers, rugged canyons and vast expanses of the Owyhee Canyonlands!

ONDA has pressed for the protection of this irreplaceable landscape for decades. But only 5% of the millions of acres of the Owyhee have been permanently protected. Threats from extractive industries, development, growing urban sprawl and unmanaged recreation are clawing at the edges of the Owyhee.

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.
