This past Saturday, the Deschutes River Conservancy celebrated our 6th Annual RiverFeast Benefit Dinner at the magnificent home of  Bob and Carolyn Burgess at Ranch at the Canyons. Guests enjoyed the vocal styling of Lori Fletcher’s Deco Moon Jazz while mingling with friends in front of sweeping views of the Crooked River and Smith Rock.  After a sumptuous dinner served by the Deschutes Brewery, Becky Johnson, Vice-President of OSU-Cascades, spoke to the crowd about higher education possibilities based on the DRC’s collaborative restoration model. The evening’s activities ended with a water auction fundraiser for the DRC. This year’s event truly was a distinctive gathering at a magnificent location to bask in the beauty and significance of our local rivers and streams!
