ONDA has formed cooperative agreements with several BLM district offices to conduct annual monitoring of wilderness and wilderness study areas (WSAs) in eastern Oregon. ONDA relies on independent stewards to help get this important work accomplished. Once stewards are trained, they can go out on their own year-round and make sure that these special places are being cared for.
Enjoy a campout near Steelhead Falls, which is less an hour drive from Bend, and learn how to monitor eastern Oregon’s wild places. At this training, you will learn how to make field observations and record what you find. Choose two of three days to participate in the training, either arriving Thursday evening and staying through Friday afternoon, or arriving Friday evening and staying through Saturday afternoon.
This training is intended for independent stewards who will be able to conduct monitoring trips in 2019 and 2020.
