As representatives of the eight irrigation districts that serve Central Oregon’s many ranches and farms, the DBBC wants to create an educational campaign promoting the importance of #agriculture to our region, both economically and culturally. To our patrons, it’s more than just a job; it’s a way of life, one passed down through generations. Click here to help support this noble cause. http://bit.ly/2aV56tDRead more

This week, Deschutes conservation planning is picking up. The next phase of the nearly decadelong process of creating a habitat conservation plan for the Deschutes River Basin began yesterday in Bend and Madras. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be hosting a total of four meetings — two in Bend, two in Madras — where members of the public can learn about the process of creating a long-term plan that will meet the needs of #farmers and other #WaterUsers, while also ensuring that the #OregonSpottedFrog and other threatened species living in the basin will be protected in the future.

Hot weather can make cooling off in a Central Oregon canal tempting, and that includes our pets. If your pet jumps in, don't attempt to go in after them - canal currents are extremely misleading and dangerous, with prior fatalities proving this. Instead, call 911 for help, and educate your kids and grandkids on #CanalSafety so you can all treasure your summer memories!Read more

Central Oregon offers no lack of outdoor activities, and our kids and pets are out in full force taking advantage of this fantastic summer weather. That being said, we will continue to focus on canal safety. A reminder to never swim in canals - not only is it illegal, but poses potentially fatal results. Canal sides are slippery and insidious currents are surprisingly strong despite a calm looking surface. So spread the word to help all have a fun - and SAFE - summer!Read more
