ONDA's Take On BLM SE Oregon Management

Amanda Peacher/OPB

The Bureau of Land Management's amendment of its Southeastern Oregon Resource Management Plan is not only closely followed by the Oregon Natural Desert Association, it is the result of action by ONDA. 

The conservation group took issue with earlier BLM decisions, and took the agency to court.  Now public comments are being taken on the plan amendment--focused on grazing, off-road vehicle use, and lands with wilderness values--until August 28th. 

The land in question includes the Owyhee Canyonlands, held near and dear by ONDA.  The group's Owyhee Coordinator, Corie Harlan, lays out the issues.
