UDRC Mission

The UDRC was created in 2003 to enable communities along the Upper Deschutes River to work together to resolve natural resource issues in this sensitive, fire-prone area.  With 24 individual communities dispersed among four rivers and a rich forestland, the Coalition provides one collective voice to accomplish more than one community could achieve alone.

Our Vision: Communities and partners aware of the issues, engaged, collaborating and acting together to create and maintain a healthy, scenic, and sustainable environment where everyone is able to live with their core values.

Our Mission: To protect Upper Deschutes River communities by restoring and sustaining healthy fire-resistant forests, pure and abundant river flows and wildlife habitat.
