Co-hosted by COGS and Coalition for the Deschutes
Friday October 4th, 9:00 Am to 4:00 PM
Trip Leaders: Daniele Mckay (Univ. of Oregon) & Kyle Gormon (Oregon Water Resources Dept.)
Thanks to the young volcanic geology of Central Oregon, the Deschutes River was known as the "Peculiar River." Like much of the west, the river and irrigation were key to the settling this area. Join Daniele McKay and Kyle Gorman for an exploration of the natural system and how the Deschutes River is managed today.
We'll meet at the Park and Float parking lot at the corner Simpson Ave. and Bradbury Way, across from The Pavilion at 1000 SW Bradbury Way. Please arrive 15 minutes early to get signed in and organized as a group.
From there we'll drive to multiple sites along the Upper Deschutes River. Bring snacks and lunch, and dress for variable weather. There'll be one or two very short walks on trails.
Dr. Daniele McKay has a PhD in geology from the University of Oregon. She studies volcanic activity and has focused much of her research on central Oregon volcanoes.
Kyle Gorman is Oregon Water Resources Department (OWRD) Region Manager for the South Central Region, which includes the Deschutes, Klamath, and Lake Basins.
