Join us on the John Day River for a day of volunteer work!
On Saturday, April 22nd, we’re heading to Cottonwood Canyon State Park to plant, run irrigation lines and cage cottonwood cuttings. As we like to think of it, we'll be putting the 'Cottonwood' back in Cottonwood Canyon State Park.
We hope you’ll come out! We’ll get our hands dirty, have some fun and improve fish and wildlife habitat along and above the river.
Western Rivers Conservancy is heading to the river this Black Friday when we #OptOutside with REI and millions of others who've decided to skip the madness of the mall and hit the great outdoors. Our destination of choice, of course, is the sweet smelling, soul soothing river, where we'll hike, fish, birdwatch and maybe even do a little winter kayaking. We hope you'll do the same!
To help you decide where to go, here's an abbreviated Field Guide to WRC Rivers--places where we have acquired land to protect habitat and create and improve public river access for all! And if you like these rivers, support our efforts to do more on great rivers around the West.
See you on the river!
