Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

Upper Deschutes Watershed Council River Clean-up

Posted By on Mon, Jun 27, 2016 at 2:23 PM

While we have been busy wringing our hands about the river trash, Upper Deschutes Watershed Council has been busy doing something about it. The local river stewards coordinate the annual Deschutes River Clean-up, and Kolleen Miller, the group's Education Director, confirms that, "We have watched the problem increase exponentially over the past six years. Last summer we removed bags and bags of garbage from the river—everything from cell phones to flip flops, Red Robin chairs to bikes, GoPros to hundreds and hundreds of beer bottles."

In addition to hosting the next Deschutes River Clean-up on August 6, Upper Deschutes Watershed Council has created a Public Service Announcement to remind river users to #enjoyprotectrespect the river. Share it with your family, your friends, and your frenemies.
