Experience the Deschutes: Join Us for the Raise the Deschutes River Walk and Talk Tour

Immerse Yourself in the Beauty and History of Our Lifeline - The Deschutes River.

Deepen your understanding of our environment through an enriching, serene evening by the river. Please join us for the "Raise the Deschutes River Walk and Talk Tour," happening on August 30th, from 6 pm to 8 pm.

Discover the Deschutes Basin

The Deschutes River is not just a body of water that graces our region; it's a living, changing system that has played a significant role in our community's past and continues to shape its future. Our Walk and Talk tour is designed to foster a deeper understanding of this remarkable river system and our place within it.

Starting as the evening draws near, we will embark on a leisurely walk around the beautiful banks of the Deschutes River. During the walk, our group will stop at several key points to discuss various topics, including the unique dynamics of the Deschutes basin, the changes it has undergone, and the ways in which human activity has impacted it.

Learn About The River's Ecosystem

Understanding the effects on the river and its inhabitants is vital. As we traverse the river's edges, DRC staff will discuss the rich biodiversity of the Deschutes, explaining how shifts in the environment can impact everything from the smallest microorganisms to the largest mammals. By delving into the complexities of the river's ecosystem, we hope to underscore the importance of every action taken within our community and how it ripples through our shared environment.

Get Involved with the Deschutes River Conservancy

An integral part of this event will be introducing you to the work of the Deschutes River Conservancy. Our mission is to restore streamflow and improve water quality in the Deschutes Basin. This evening, we will share how we're working towards this mission and the strategies we're employing. We'll discuss our ongoing projects, collaborations, and the tangible differences we're making in the river's health and vitality.

Engage in a Collective Responsibility

The "Raise the Deschutes River Walk and Talk Tour" is an opportunity to learn, engage, and take action. It's a moment to understand the value of our river, and the necessity of protecting it. We encourage you to ask questions, start discussions, and consider your own relationship with the environment.

Our tour isn't just about knowledge; it's about inspiring a sense of responsibility. Every individual action can either benefit or harm our shared ecosystem. With the right understanding and commitment, we can all help ensure the Deschutes River continues to be a vibrant, life-giving force for generations to come.
