Oregon Wild Wednesday Portland: The Wild Owyhee River

Join Oregon Wild at Base Camp Brewing Co. for a pint and some local food cart fare for this special Oregon Wild event. 

The spectacular Owyhee River and canyonlands, in far southeastern Oregon and neighboring Idaho and Nevada, may be Oregon’s most remote wild place – and one of its best kept secrets. Join Bonnie Olin, author of The Owyhee River Journals, who brings an intimate knowledge of the area acquired from numerous trips into the canyonlands over a period of 22 years, as she leads a presentation that immerses the audience in this very special place. Learn about the history of the Owyhee region and what makes it so special, and follow Bonnie on an actual expedition into the Owyhee canyon in a short film. Also learn more about efforts to protect this amazing corner of Oregon and what you can do to help.

In addition to Bonnie’s presentation, learn more about Oregon Wild’s current efforts to protect wild places across the state – from the Ochoco Mountains to Crater Lake to the Oregon Coast Range – and how we work together with partners to advance efforts to protect places like the Owyhee.
