  • Deschutes River Conservancy

    The Deschutes River Conservancy has been dedicated to bringing people together to create consensus-based solutions to complex water issues in the basin since 1996. Through our partnerships, the DRC has been able to restore more than 93,000 gallons per minute to our local rivers and streams. Just 25 years ago, flows in the Middle Deschutes (shown left) would get so low in the summer months, that fish habitat would be severely impacted.

  • Kor Community Land Trust

    Kôr provides permanently affordable and environmentally sustainable homeownership opportunities for those who contribute to the fabric of our Bend-area economy and community. We serve low- to middle-income and workforce families, so that they have a path to homeownership and the educational, economic, and social benefits that homeownership affords. We are Central Oregon’s only housing provider to use the community land trust model—of trust ownership of land and individual ownership of homes—to build inclusive and goal net-zero communities. Please join us in helping to address Bend’s housing shortage and the urgent challenges of climate change.

  • Central Oregon LandWatch

    Since 1985, LandWatch has been protecting the things we all love about Central Oregon: our farm and forest land, rivers and springs, wildlife habitat and well-designed communities. We’re still leading the way. LandWatch works to protect Central Oregon’s natural areas and the character of existing neighborhoods by advocating for the development of Bend’s Central District and safe connections between east and west Bend, defending land use laws that protect farm and forest land from fragmentation and inappropriate development, and working to protect flows in rivers and springs. Through these efforts, LandWatch ensures Central Oregon residents enjoy a good quality of life among the natural areas that make our region so unique.
