Bend Public Lands Summit

As Oregonians, we are fortunate to interact with public lands and wild places regularly. Our access to the great outdoors is the reason many of us choose to reside here, but these wild places do not exist without the help of the citizens like you who are willing to speak up for them.

Please join Oregon Wild, Oregon Natural Desert Association, the Central Oregon Bitterbrush Broads, the Vocal Seniority and Coalition for the Deschutes for a fun and interactive presentation and training on our public lands, the values at risk, and how to get involved and advocate for wild places.
