Tell Sen. Wyden & Rep. Blumenauer: It’s time to protect Oregon’s High Desert public lands!

Jim Davis

This month, Senator Wyden and Rep. Blumenauer are holding a Public Lands Forum: ‘What’s next for federal public land protections in Oregon?

Sending a strong answer to this question is a critical moment that could dramatically change the number of protected public lands throughout Oregon’s high desert. As a passionate, steadfast advocate for Oregon’s public lands, please raise your voice on behalf of our high desert lands, waters and wildlife.

Take action to let Senator Wyden and Representative Blumenauer know that you care about Oregon’s high desert public lands and that places like the Owyhee Canyonlands, Whychus-Deschutes and Sutton Mountain need protection now!

“My greatest hope is that Oregon’s desert continues to gain public lands protections, and is guarded from unsustainable development, so that future generations may benefit from all the region has to offer.

I felt inspired by trips to Oregon’s high desert, and was actively searching for ways to contribute to the protection of these wild places. ONDA stood out as a leader in this respect, and when I’ve had money to contribute, ONDA has been a clear choice.”

In the summer these lizards begin foraging for food as soon as their body temperature rises as the heat of the day increases. They feed on slow-moving, ground-dwelling insects. In the fall they hibernate by burying themselves in the sand.
