Our Mission

Working to restore the Deschutes River so fish, farms, and families can thrive.

OUR STORY

Water in the West has always been a contentious issue, with strong advocates for agriculture, development, recreation, and many other uses. There are no real winners when those forces compete, but often there is a loser: the river.

We engage the entire community—including families, irrigators, farmers, recreationists, and businesses—to overcome old obstacles and build bridges between historically divergent interests.

In building a broad-based constituency committed to restoring the Deschutes River, we are changing the traditional narrative of water in the West. We believe we can and must do better—together, we will.
