Shared Vision for the Deschutes River

is a collaboration between local irrigators and conservationists that benefits farms and fish.

 The Coalition for the Deschutes and Deschutes Basin Board of Control (comprising the 8 irrigation districts of Central Oregon) have jointly developed and endorsed a memorandum entitled: “A Shared Vision for the Deschutes: Working Together so Families, Farms, and Fish can Thrive.”

The diverse stakeholders commit to work together as partners and embrace the goals of having:

  • A healthy, restored Deschutes River
  • Thriving farms and sustainable agriculture
  • Robust and vibrant communities

The agreement aligns the shared interests to maintain irrigated agriculture in Central Oregon and restore the Upper Deschutes River to a healthy ecological condition.

More endorsing parties include Deschutes River Conservancy, Trout Unlimited, Deschutes Redbands, SunRiver Anglers, Oregon Environmental Council, and Wild River Owners Association.
