8,600 acres protected

Oregon Natural Desert Association spearheaded this campaign to protect the 8,600-acrea Spring Basin Wilderness. The area lies adjacent to a nine-mile stretch of the Wild and Scenic John Day River, and is borders on three sides by a 30,000-acre holding managed by the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs for wildlife and recreation.
