True, that's where most of the people live in Oregon, but the largest landform in the state is high desert; pretty much everything east of the Cascades. 

The Oregon Natural Desert Association works to preserve the high, dry spaces.  And ONDA celebrates its 30th birthday this year. 

Executive Director Brent Fenty visits with the word on what ONDA does and would like to do.
