Lace Thornberg

Communications Manager


(541) 330-2638, ext. 303


Lace joined ONDA in 2017. She puts ONDA’s communications to work connecting people with the public lands found in Oregon’s high desert.

Previous job titles include editor of Washington Trails, development director at Washington Trails Association, and project manager at the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, and communications and development director at Braided River, where she focused on preserving biodiversity in western North America through visual storytelling. In 2012, a Fulbright grant carried Lace to the Philippines, where she worked with rural fishers and farmers to establish a community-run museum.

Lace holds a master’s degree in museology from the University of Washington and a bachelor’s degree in writing from Concordia College in Minnesota.

Rock-climbing at Smith Rock drew her to Central Oregon, and she’s excited to explore new opportunities for mountaineering, hiking, skiing and biking in this stretch of the Pacific Northwest.
