Natasha Bellis

Vice President


Growing up in Wyoming and Utah, Natasha gained an early appreciation for wild and open spaces. Cultivating a love of the desert by roaming the canyon lands of southern Utah, she was inspired to pursue a career in environmental studies and has spent the past 20 years working to conserve land and water in Oregon. Natasha is currently the Conservation Director at Deschutes Land Trust where she oversees land protection transactions for the organization. Prior to that, she worked to restore streamflow to Oregon’s rivers and streams by negotiating environmental water right transactions for the Deschutes River Conservancy and The Freshwater Trust.

Natasha holds a masters of science in environmental studies from the University of Montana and a JD from Lewis and Clark Law School with a certificate in Environmental and Natural Resource Law. As a former law clerk with ONDA, Natasha is excited to return to the organization as a board member. She has lived in Bend since 2015.
