Welcoming our new Bend intern!


Hi, I am Kelby! I just recently joined Oregon Wild as the Ochoco Mountains Outreach and Stewardship Intern for the 2019 summer. Coming from Colorado, I grew up outdoors and have fostered a love for nature which has pushed me to pursue a career in conservation. This passion for conservation work has come from my love of animals and nature that I have had my entire life. 

A win but not a solution for the Ochoco Mountains

The Bend Source recently published this letter to the editor by Jamie, our Ochoco Mountains Coordinator:

"As the Source recently reported, quiet recreationists across the state rejoiced at the news that a plan proposing 130+ miles of additional off-road vehicle trails in the Ochocos was struck down by the courts. The proposal would have been bad news for wildlife like deer and elk as well as hikers, equestrians, and mountain bikers.

Happy fall from the Oregon Wild office in Bend! Songbirds are flocking up to prepare for migration, the larches have changed to golden yellow, and snow has begun to fall in the Ochocos.

With the summer season officially wrapped up, we’ve finally had time to reflect on what a great season it was. For me, one of the highlights was the blossoming partnership between Oregon Wild and Soul River, Inc. - a Portland-based nonprofit that shares the healing powers of rivers and nature with veterans and inner city youth.
