One Man's Trash...

One Man's Trash...

A trio of surf lovers takes river cleanup to the next level, exploring the underwater world of the Deschutes
"I grabbed this baby head... not a real one!" says Kea Eubank as we stand at the edge of the water in Pioneer Park. Apparently that's just how it goes when you dive under the Deschutes River; you never know what you're going to get.

Outdoor City, USA

Find what you're looking for at Mt. Bachelor this weekend
Whether you're a multi-sport athlete who wants a one-stop shop for all the things you love to do outdoors, or you're looking to explore a new activity, you may find what you're looking for at Mt. Bachelor this weekend.

Connecting Through Adventure

The inaugural Cascadia Adventure Film Festival is a homegrown fest with an international reach
In Central Oregon, visitors and locals might have the chance to go mountain biking, whitewater rafting and hiking all in the same day. There's a good chance you'll get a look at all these activities even if you aren't the one partaking.

Still Water

A cool summer and fear of wildfires have contributed to a slow rafting season
Rafting companies in the Bend area are seeing fewer trips booked this summer. Many attribute the decrease to cooler weather in the area and concern about possible trip cancellations due to forest fires.

Cross is Coming

Cyclocross unites cycling community for dusty, good-natured fun
Get ready for beer hand-ups and incessant cough-inducing dust clouds: cyclocross season is barreling toward Central Oregon. A multi-surface cycling discipline that pits furry-limbed mountain bikers against leg-waxing roadies, cyclocross poses the question—if never completely answering it—of which breed of cyclist is more capable.

A Healthy Self

As teens and young adults struggle more than ever with mental health issues, wilderness therapy offers a way to unplug
Instead of meeting regularly in a medical office, the clinical team at New Vision Wilderness takes things outside, facilitating group and individual therapy for young people and families year-round.

Battle at Bachelor

A premier disc golf competition, set amongst towering trees and mountain views, continues to grow
The discs will be flying during the Battle at Bachelor premier Pro Disc Golf Association event of Central Oregon Aug. 10 and 11. Hosted by the Central Oregon Disc Golf Club, at least 163 participants are registered to compete against elevation, tight fairways and towering trees as they play a specially created 18-hole course that winds through Mt. Bachelor's Nordic Trail system.

The Hummingbird Wannabe

The tale of the moth that looks like a beloved bird
Well, good people, hummingbird moths are in season. Yes, they can fool you; some people think they're actually hummingbirds, while others don't know what they are, as evidenced by an email I received the other day with the question, "What, pray tell is this?"

2019 Subaru Outside Games

Whether you're participating or spectating, there's something for everyone at this outdoor celebration
From mountain biking to bouldering, kayaking and more, the Subaru Outside Games showcases some of Central Oregon's favorite pasttimes while appreciating the beauty of the surrounding area.

East Trails Project Off and Running

Madras COTA chapter creating multi-use trails for just about everyone, and every skill level
The land east of Madras is sparsely covered with juniper trees, sage and other desert plants. It's great habitat if you're a sage grouse, but maybe not the best place to create a biking trail system—at least to the untrained eye.
