Description

Recreation and Rivers, with Lisa Machnik, Ph.D.

Our speaker, Dr. Lisa Machnik, will take us for a journey into the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act: the historical context, the fundamentals of the Act, how rivers are managed, and:

The Wild and Scenic Rivers of Central Oregon - how lucky we are to have these resources in our backyard!

Beer by Boneyard!

Presented by the Coalition for the Deschutes and Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe.
