May 13th, 2013

The DScott_Web4d300feschutes River Conservancy wishes longtime staff member, Scott McCaulou, the best of luck in his new position as the Program Director of the Columbia Basin Water Transactions Program at the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation in Portland.

Over the past fourteen years at the DRC, Scott presided over a period of tremendous growth and oversaw streamflow restoration projects that resulted in more than 200 cubic feet per second (cfs) of water being restored to Central Oregon’s rivers and streams.

“A large part of the DRC’s success over the past decade can be attributed to Scott’s steady hand and mastery of project design and implementation,” said DRC Executive Director, Tod Heisler. “We will miss him greatly at the DRC, but his new position will allow him to take the expertise he has gathered so far to support organizations engaged in restoring streamflow throughout the greater Columbia Basin.
