2005 Success

Grantee:  Oregon Natural Desert Association

Result: 30,000 acres protected

Conservation Alliance funding helped the Oregon Natural Desert Association (ONDA) secure protection for the Badlands Wilderness Study Area east of Bend, Oregon. ONDA used our support to participate in a BLM management planning process that resulted in a new plan for the Badlands that prohibits motorized vehicles from the 30,000-acre wildland. The plan also allows BLM to permanently retire permits to graze livestock in the Badlands. While working to influence the new management plan, ONDA negotiated a deal with a local rancher to purchase his Badlands grazing permit and pass it back to BLM to retire.
