Upcoming Events

Deschutes River Volunteer Planting Party

Tuesday, November 23rd,  10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Tumwater, WA

Join TCD in restoring property along the Deschutes River! Volunteers will help create healthy habitat by planting native trees and shrubs along the river. These plantings will grow and eventually serve as important habitat for wildlife as well as create shade that helps keep the river cool and healthy for aquatic species like salmon.
There are 15 volunteer spots available. Please register in advance if you plan to attend.
