The #UpperDeschutesRiver is a hot topic and processes are underway to develop solutions to improve the ecological function of the river. Although the degraded condition of the river has been recognized for years, the recent ESA listing of the #OregonSpottedFrog has highlighted a broader aspect of the Deschutes River that includes the adjacent wetlands. Join the Coalition for the Deschutes, Tuesday, January 24th, 6:30 – 8:00 pm, McMennamins Old St. Francis School. Our program presenters, Jason Gritzner and Jennifer O’Reilly, are local scientists working to assess the effects of water management on the Upper Deschutes River and wetland ecosystems. Through partnerships in the basin, their focus is to elucidate how flows interface with and support the function of the Deschutes River and its adjacent riverine wetlands.

#CentralOregon, we need your help! Due to the recent #PNWSnowStorms, we've noticed that people are placing snow they have removed from roofs and driveways into the #IrrigationCanals. Please DO NOT do this - it is both not allowed and increases the chance of flooding that could harm our neighbors and the community. Please check with us for future stock runs schedules, and thank you for helping us take care of our community! Photo Credit: The Source WeeklyRead more

What's going on with local #Hydroelectric projects in #CentralOregon? Longstanding plans to add a small hydroelectric project at #WickiupDam are still around — but a little uncertain. In 2011, Wickiup Hydro Group LLC — a subsidiary of Idaho firm Symbiotics LLC — sought a license from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to build an approximately 7 megawatt facility at the Bureau of Reclamation dam outside of Bend. A megawatt equals 1 million watts, about enough electricity for 750 homes! The proposed “run-of-reservoir” hydroelectric project would operate when water flows fall within certain ranges, without changing reservoir operation, according to the application.

You have the opportunity to support #LocalAgriculture in #CentralOregon! As one of the eight irrigation districts that serve Central Oregon’s many ranches and farms, we want to create an educational campaign promoting the importance of agriculture to our region, both economically and culturally. It’s more than just a job; it’s a way of life, one passed down through generations. As some of the oldest organizations in the region, we at the irrigation districts feel that same responsibility to protect the region’s agricultural legacy. Your donation will go towards funding educational materials, support for agricultural events, information stands at community events, public outreach campaigns and other materials to help illustrate the importance of agriculture to our livelihoods, the fabric of our communities and our way of life. Help your local community and donate: http://bit.ly/2aV56tDRead more

Here #inBend - local agriculture needs your support! More than 100 years ago the first shovels began to carve out what would eventually become a 1,200+ mile long canal system. It was all to support what could be called the region’s first start-ups: the ranches and family farms built by settlers seeking to tame one of the West’s last frontiers. Today, #CentralOregon is well-known for many other industries, from microbreweries to golf resorts to tech startups and data centers. However, those original settlers would easily recognize the region thanks to the large role agriculture still plays in our community.
