  Local Non-Profit

The Deschutes River Conservancy is a non-profit organization actively developing and implementing holistic water management solutions  that restore the rivers and streams of the Deschutes Basin while improving conditions for agriculture, recreation, communities and wildlife. The Deschutes River Conservancy has been able to accomplish more in the past 16 years than any other streamflow restoration group in the Columbia River Basin because of a commitment to collaborative, consensus-based strategies.  Give back to the river you love!
