Every year, we host and collaborate on several events that bring the community together and allow us to thank our supporters and showcase our work. From student presentations to river clean-up to fundraising, there are many ways to join us and see the exciting progress that we are making in the Upper Deschutes River watershed.


Upstream is our annual fundraiser for our education program taking place on May 20th, 2017 at beautiful Brasada Ranch.  This inspiring and elegant evening features a gourmet dinner and silent auction and is an opportunity to show support for environmental education.
