Oregon’s Owyhee is the largest, intact, unprotected natural area in the lower 48 states. Often called Oregon’s Grand Canyon, the Owyhee’s craggy red-rock canyons, trout streams, and rolling hills make up a diverse wild land nearly the size of Yellowstone National Park. 95% of Oregon’s Owyhee lacks permanent protection, leaving it vulnerable to mining and oil and gas development.
