Video: Exploring the Wild Owyhee Region of Oregon

Protecting public lands and wild outdoor spaces has been a hot topic in the outdoor industry and the U.S. government all year long, and while Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante have received the bulk of the attention, there are other places that need preservation too. In this clip, we travel to Oregon to visit Owyhee, a spectacular outdoor playground that is nearly the size of Yellowstone, and yet 95% of it remains unprotected and at risk to commercial development, including mining. This short documentary will introduce you to this extraordinary place and show you why it should be protected.
