Wild and Diverse
Join Broads and our partners at the Campaign for the Owyhee Canyonlands for a long weekend to discover this remote, wilder-than-wild corner of southeast Oregon and learn about the ongoing efforts to gain permanent protections.
The Owyhee Canyonlands encompasses 5 million acres of craggy canyons, vast rolling hills, sparkling rivers, starry skies, and diverse wildlife including bighorn sheep, greater sage-grouse, and red band trout. Volcanic features include hot springs, lava beds, craters, and cinder cones. It is the largest undeveloped natural area left unprotected in the continental United States.
Feed Your Mind and Your Soul
We’ll hear from Oregon Natural Desert Association and other experts about the area’s unique natural resources, work on a stewardship project, hike and explore with knowledgeable local leaders, and learn how to help gain protection for the amazing Owyhee Canyonlands.
Our base camp will be in the beautiful Succor Creek State Natural Area, which lies in a deep, rocky canyon, and is a haven for rock hounds and wildlife watchers.
Though our camp is primitive (no running water), we’ll have portable toilets. Our camp cook will prepare a scrumptious breakfast and dinner each day for the group. We’ll be treated to evenings of camaraderie and star watching.
Broaden your horizons and experience this remote and unprotected natural gem with rugged red-rock canyons, sparkling rivers, and starry skies. Learn, work, and play—all in classic Broadwalk style.
