Wild Desert Calendar

Jim Davis

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 calendar in the mail in November.

While ONDA has sold out of our supply of 2021 Wild Desert Calendars, they may still be available through our list of retail partners below. We recommend calling your vendor of choice in advance to ensure that they have calendars remaining and to learn what social distancing measures are in place.

Your purchase supports initiatives to protect, defend and restore Oregon’s high desert.
