Nearly 5 million acres of public land in Owyhee Canyonlands need your voice this summer.
The Bureau of Land Management has released its Draft Resource Management Plan Amendment for Southeastern Oregon. ONDA’s assessment of the BLM’s preferred alternative is that it:
- fails to adequately protect lands with wilderness characteristics
- disregards local stakeholder input
- fails to implement common sense rules on where off-road vehicles can travel
- leaves wild desert places to camp, hunt, fish, and hike vulnerable to development pressure
This process – and opportunity for public comment – follows two decades of successful advocacy and precedent-setting legal action led by ONDA. Now, the BLM needs to hear from people who know, use, and love our public lands that there is strong, broad support for conservation in the Owyhee.
