OHA Bend Chapter Work

Each year several projects and activities are organized and carried out that support our mission. As we define them and set dates we'll post information here. We encourage all members to come join us in the field. It is here we often make great friendships and get to give back to the resources that we are passionate about. Most of our projects take place during the summer months when the outdoor conditions and weather allow us to be most effective.

In 2017 the Bend Chapter:

1. Maintained and repaired 8 miles of fence supporting the Lava                Butte wildlife crossings under Hwy 97 including emergency repairs         in December when a vehicle accident wiped out over a 100 feet of             fence.
