One Gift For Everyone on Your List

Looking for a gift that is … beautiful, non-perishable, one size fits all, not affected by supply chain disruption, and easy to mail? Oh, and you want it to support a good cause at the same time? Well, friends, ONDA has you covered!

ONDA’s Wild Desert Calendar makes a great gift …

For anyone that you want to give something priceless.

Here’s your chance to give someone more than 8 million acres of desert beauty, day in and day out, all for just $15.

ONDA’s Wild Desert Calendar is a volunteer-driven, generously sponsored publication, so you can feel great knowing that 100% of sales proceeds go directly to supporting desert conservation. Shop Now.

For people who live in Oregon.

Could there be a better introduction to the wonders of Oregon’s dry side for those Oregonians who are new here, or for those who spend more time on the mossy side of the Cascade crest? And, of course, it’s perfect for anyone who lives in or near the high desert, too. Shop Now.

For people who don’t live in Oregon.

Have family and friends in the Midwest or on the east coast? People who don’t have these kinds of wide-open landscapes in their own backyards really appreciate these desert scenes. Shop Now.

There’s really only one type of person that the Wild Desert Calendar isn’t perfect for, and that’s someone who already has one.

But, don’t worry, we have a few options for those folks, too:

“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.”

Young Desert Horned Lizard

Young Desert Horned Lizard

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.
