 Oregon is known for its lush forests and rugged coast, but the eastern half of our state holds a fascinating desert landscape that is surprisingly diverse and teeming with life. From snow-capped peaks, to raging rivers flowing through sheer-walled canyons to the vast sagebrush sea, Oregonís high desert offers endless opportunities for adventure and exploration.

Gena Goodman-Campbell and Dan Morse, both with the Oregon Natural Desert Association (ONDA), will present a fascinating history of wilderness in Oregon and will discuss opportunities to protect new wilderness areas in Central Oregon's High Desert. They'll also talk in depth about the Owyhee Canyondlands, the largest swath of unprotected wilderness in the lower 48 states.
