Oregon Desert Land Trust, formed in 2017, is dedicated to protecting wild and working lands in a region spanning more than 10 million acres. We’ve worked with landowners, tribes, land managers, and other partners to acquire and conserve over 20,000 acres of privately-owned land within surrounding public lands and conservation areas. Our lands are managed to sustain healthy habitats, abundant wildlife, and the resource-dependent economies of local communities throughout Oregon’s high desert.
