Our 20th Annual Deschutes River Clean-Up was a huge success!

Thanks to 200 dedicated volunteers who came out to clean up our river, we removed 1,400 pounds of garbage from the river and its banks!
From divers to paddlers to shoreline hikers, we collected 67 bags of litter and weeds from the riparian area and 25 bags of instream debris.
Thank you to all who came out to do the dirty work to care for our river.  Thank you also to all of our wonderful sponsors and local businesses
who helped support the day and make it such a success!
