The Deschutes River is undeniably the crown jewel of Bend, bringing visitors and new residents to our city because of the recreational and fishing opportunities it provides. For this week’s Great Outdoors, Brian Jennings introduces us to the army of volunteers who protect that jewel and keep it clean and shiny for the rest of us.
Tune in every Wednesday night for another new edition of The Great Outdoors where we explore the lakes, rivers and mountains across our beautiful state on Central Oregon Daily.
On Monday Oregon State University – Cascades students used their day off to give back to the community during their third annual Martine Luther King Jr. Day of Service.
