We are the stewards of Oregon Badlands Wilderness, a high desert jewel of the National Conservation Lands. Individuals are engaged in the community, in education and restoration projects while at the same time deepening their connection with the landscape and building support for wilderness in Oregon. Friends of the Badlands volunteers are a special group of people who are dedicated to preserving the Oregon Badlands Wilderness.

The Oregon Badlands Wilderness holds a number of remarkable and exciting landforms and geologic features. The 30,000-acre wilderness includes rugged high-desert features of unique volcanic formations and thousand year old juniper trees. Windblown volcanic ash and eroded lava make up the sandy, high-colored soil that covers the low and flat places in these fields of lava.
