Celebrating Deschutes National Forest - Smiling eyes and Shimmering Rivers

This was a gathering of partners, friends and collaborators who came together to celebrate the completion of the National Forest Foundation’s “Tale of Two Rivers” Treasured Landscapes, Unforgettable Experiences campaign. The NFF, working in coordination with the Forest Service, leveraged more than $4 million to restore Whychus Creek and the Metolius River, both National Wild and Scenic Rivers. These rivers are truly treasured landscapes and are highly valued by the community of Sisters and the many people who hike or fish these rivers.

SanTan Brewing Company, Pink Jeep Tours, Nackard Beverages and Salt River Project all came together for the volunteer day, turning out 27 volunteers.
