Wild Desert Calendar

Devin Dahlgren

Oregon Natural Desert Association publishes the Wild Desert Calendar every year to share the awe-inspiring photography from Oregon’s dry side. Each calendar features treasured Oregon public lands, from the Owyhee Canyonlands to the Deschutes River canyon, as well as intimate portraits of high desert wildlife and evocative prose.

The Wild Desert Calendar is a benefit of ONDA membership. Become a member today to receive a complimentary 2020 calendar in the mail this November.

While ONDA has sold out of 2019 Wild Desert Calendars, you may still be able to purchase a copy through our vendor partners located throughout the state. Look at the list below to find a vendor near you.

“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.”

Western Rattlesnake

Also known as the Great Basin Rattlesnake, these pit vipers have buff-tan coloring and small, oval blotches to blend into their arid surroundings. Small heat-sensing indentations on each side of the snake’s snout detects warm-blooded prey for better striking accuracy in the dark. Source: The Oregon Encyclopedia

Latin name: Crotalus oreganus lutosus
