Join the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council for our largest annual day of stewardship, the Deschutes River Cleanup, on Saturday, July 29th!
River and riparian cleanup activities will take place along the riparian areas of the Deschutes River at six different stewardship sites throughout Central Oregon: La Pine State Park, Meadow Camp Picnic Area, Farewell Bend Park, Riverbend Park, First Street Rapids Trail, and Tumalo State Park. We would like to thank our partners at Oregon State Parks and Leave No Trace for helping make this incredible day of stewardship possible! Community volunteers of all ages are invited to pull invasive weeds, remove litter from the stream banks, and dive instream to pull debris out of the river itself. Thanks to volunteers’ hard work last year, we removed approximately 2,600 pounds of garbage and weeds from the Deschutes River and its sensitive riparian areas! We hope you can join us for another great day of stewardship this summer.
Registration will open on June 1st, and all volunteers must register ahead of time in order to participate. Volunteers will choose a specific cleanup site during the registration process.
