On Tuesday, June 25, volunteers from Conservation Alliance members and other outdoor companies will gather in Sisters for a day of collective stewardship and conservation on Whychus Creek.
In an effort to contribute to healthy stream conditions in Whychus Creek, Conservation Alliance volunteers from Ruffwear, Footzone, Stanley PMI, and Hydro Flask will work with the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council to protect and restore degraded riparian areas along the creek. Volunteers will monitor water quality and restore stream conditions through a variety of activities including planting native species. Enhancing and increasing riparian vegetation will benefit fish and wildlife and increase stream shading to improve instream conditions.
Since its inception in 1989, the Alliance has contributed more than $11.9 million to grassroots conservation groups. Membership in the Alliance is open to companies representing all aspects of the outdoor industry, including manufacturers, retailers, publishers, mills and sales representatives.
