Oregon Natural Desert Association
A diverse group of folks, including teachers, doctors, students, naturalists and retirees, came together over their shared love of Oregonâ€™s deserts. They were driven to action by their conviction that the governmentâ€™s recent inventory of wild desert lands had missed a huge chunk of the places that they knew and loved. Sure enough, when they banded together to take up their own inventory of Oregonâ€™s wild places, it was confirmed that there are nearly 8 million acres of wilderness-quality land in Eastern Oregon. They realized that without a group dedicated to protect, defend and restore these wild desert lands they could be lost forever. From this small group of desert-lovers, ONDA was born.
