Training Tribal Youth To Protect The Desert

Aug 7, 2019

The Oregon Natural Desert Association takes a variety of approaches to protecting Oregon's desert lands.  The approaches now include training descendants of the desert's original inhabitants to help in the protection processes. 

The Tribal Stewards Program launched this summer with members of the Warm Springs, Siletz, and Navajo tribes. 

Ben Gordon coordinated the program; he joins us to talk about what work is being done, and where.
