The Great Outdoors: Recreate in Maupin

In our ongoing reporting on the Deschutes River, we have explored just how important the river is to agriculture in Central Oregon. In this week’s Great Outdoors, Brian Jennings explores just how important the river is to the economy of the town of Maupin, where recreation is the lifeblood of the small town.

A special thanks to our Great Outdoors sponsor, Parr Lumber, for giving us the time and resources to explore the lakes, rivers and mountains across our beautiful state every Wednesday night on Central Oregon Daily.
