About Us

Save The Riders Dunes emerged from a shared experience at a 10c Travel Management Meeting in 2009 centered on the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area (ODNRA).

Gathered around a campfire, a group of enthusiasts came together, sparking the inception of STRD.

Why is STRD Important?

We Protect your rights!

We maintain public dune access by challenging environmental impact statements.

Clearing Invasive Species

We cleared & cleaned over 45 acres of invasive & noxious vegetation from the dunes.

Planning for the future

We started working with BRC and ODNRA since the early stages of EIS drafts in 2010.
