At BendBroadband, we are committed to supporting the quality of life we all enjoy in Central Oregon. This month, we have partnered with the Deschutes River Conservancy to raise awareness of the stream flow challenges facing our rivers and streams in the Deschutes Basin. Healthy rivers and streams are part of what makes Central Oregon a beautiful place to live. They are a legacy we will bequeath to our children and grandchildren.
Over the past 16 years, the Deschutes River Conservancy has been bringing water users together to protect the river’s flow while ensuring there is enough water for all who need it. Its efforts have led to a fivefold increase in streamflow in the middle Deschutes River as well as significant increases in streams around the basin. Restoring our rivers is a community effort, and we are asking you to take part. Buy a $10 button to show your support and receive over $75 worth of discounts at local businesses. Buttons are available at Deschutes Brewery, Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe, Footzone, VisitBend and online at www.deschutesriver.org.
