December 2022 - A Heartfelt Note from the Board of Coalition for the Deschutes:
Though Coalition for the Deschutes has closed its doors, we chose not to transfer ownership of the Shared Vision to another agency. Instead, the Shared Vision and the list of all its partners will continue as a stand-alone agreement visible here through 2023.
It belongs to all of us, and, in itself, is complete.
Working together so that families, farms and fish can thrive.
The "Shared Vision for the Deschutes" is a Coalition for the Deschutes-led initiative to bring river advocacy organizations, local irrigation districts, businesses, nonprofits, and individuals together in support of:
- A healthy, restored Deschutes River
- Thriving farms and sustainable agriculture
- Robust and vibrant communities
