Jeremy Austin

Policy Manager


(541) 330-2638, ext. 310


Jeremy joined ONDA in 2012 to survey for invasive plant species and conduct aspen inventories at Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge. After two summers of working in the field, he joined the team full-time to manage our work in the Greater Hart-Sheldon Region. In his current role as Policy Manager, Jeremy leads ONDA’s work on public lands management, engaging in relevant local, state and federal policy and management issues.

A native Oregonian, Jeremy moved to Colorado to earn his bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology from Colorado State University. While at CSU, he worked on a range of projects including research on the evolutionary adaptation mechanisms of Trinidadian guppy spp., white-tailed ptarmigan demographics, and species interactions and influence on willow in Yellowstone National Park. [We’ve also heard he was in a double-dutch jump-roping club. If you have video which confirms this, please contact ONDA right away.] After leaving Colorado, Jeremy continued to follow his passion for biology, working on projects with birds, trees and plants across the state of Oregon.

When he is not out enjoying the natural world, Jeremy enjoys playing music with friends and family, backcountry skiing, hiking, and working in the yard.
