Deschutes River Alliance

Sep 27, 2016

The Deschutes River Alliance is a science-based advocacy organization seeking collaborative solutions to basin-wide threats to the health of the Deschutes River and its tributaries. We advocate for water quality, a healthy ecosystem, and for the establishment and protection of robust populations of resident and anadromous fish throughout the river’s entire watershed.

Since 2013, the DRA Science Team has worked tirelessly to determine the source and extent of significant negative environmental changes occurring in the lower Deschutes River. Led by experts in water quality and aquatic insects, we are working to create a strong scientific case supporting our understanding of these changes so we can effectively advocate for thoughtful solutions.
