Take Part in Desert Planning

This summer, you have a once-in-a-generation chance to help improve and protect the land, water and wildlife on almost 5 million acres of Oregon’s desert public lands.

The Bureau of Land Management will be seeking input from the public on a planning process that will impact how our lands are used for a generation to come.

Badgers are generally nocturnal, but, in remote areas with no human encroachment, they are routinely observed foraging during the day. They prefer open areas with grasslands, which can include parklands, farms, and treeless areas with crumbly soil and a supply of rodent prey.

Badgers are born blind, furred, and helpless. Their eyes open at four to six weeks.

Latin name: Taxidea taxus

“I connect with Oregon’s high desert through my feet, my eyes, my sense of smell, and all the things I hear. Getting out there is a whole body experience.” Supporting ONDA, Helen says, not only connects her with wild landscapes, but is also a good investment. “I felt like if I gave them $20, they might squeeze $23 out of it.”
