Join ONDA and Oregon Wild in Portland to hear about the Owyhee Canyonlands - the largest stretch of desert wilderness left in the United States!
It's a numbers game. At 2.1 million acres, the Owyhee Canyonlands is the biggest unprotected landscape out there. Not just in Oregon, but the continental U.S. So why hasn't this incredible stretch of desert wild lands been permanently protected? We don't have the numbers. Yet.
So, on March 29th, Oregon National Desert Association is bringing the Owyhee to the wet side of Oregon.
Join us from 6-9pm at the EcoTrust building in Portland to gather around some of the amazing images and stories that define the Wild Owyhee. Sip on an after-work beer and learn about hiking opportunities you won't find in any SE Oregon guidebooks. We'll share stories about Wild and Scenic river trips, sage grouse counts, and inland redband trout; and we'll talk about how to fill the Oregon desert Wilderness gap.
Don't live in Portland? Maybe you know someone there who you've been wanting to talk to about ONDA or the Owyhee Canyonlands. With one click, you can like the Owyhee on Facebook and pass along ONDA's awesome flyer.
Its going to take a coordinated effort from desert lovers on both sides of the Cascades to accomplish our vision of permanent protection on Oregon's dry side. We hope you'll join us in Portland.
