Wilderness Weekend continues! This year, thanks to our incredible partners Patagonia, East Cascade Audubon Society, Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust, Oregon Sierra Club, Oregon Wild, OSU-Cascades, The Nature Conservancy, The Pew Charitable Trusts and Worthy Brewing Company — as well as support from seventeen additional conservation groups — ONDA is hosting the 27th Desert Conference.
The Desert Conference brings together, inspires and educates over 200 attendees who care about the high desert of the Great Basin and beyond. We’ll focus on the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act and its future promise with two days filled with compelling panel discussions & presentations, hikes and keynote speakers.
Desert Conference Registration: $60
Includes an all-access pass to all keynote speakers, panel sessions, hikes, activities and celebrations. Wild & Scenic Film Festival tickets must be purchased separately.
