Sponsor the Raise the Deschutes Seminar Series


About the Seminar Series

Deschutes River Conservancy's Raise the Deschutes Seminar Series was created to increase regional water knowledge, understanding of local issues, and awareness of available solutions. These monthly seminars provide opportunities for the public to engage with water experts who will present on and answer questions regarding the primary water issues affecting the Deschutes River Basin, including water supply, river hydrology, climate change, canal piping, and water conservation options.

The seminar series will be held monthly at Open Space in Bend's Midtown District from 6 pm to 8 pm. Each seminar will be one hour, but will include gathering time before and afterward to mingle, have a drink, and ask additional questions. There will be no cost to attend the seminars, however there will be boxed dinners available for advance purchase.

Each seminar will be primarily geared toward an in-person audience, but will be professionally streamed and recorded to reach a wider audience.
