Deschutes River Alliance, and its predecessor the Lower Deschutes River Coalition, has accomplished almost all of its work during a series of collaborative forum-style meetings designed and facilitated by DRA Director of Science and Conservation Greg McMillan.
The agenda and proceedings of these meetings, along with presentations made during these sessions, have been carefully summarized and vetted and are available for public consumption, below.
