While we continue to face challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are progressing to a new normal in which we are all doing what we can to return to the favorite things we enjoyed prior to the pandemic. Students have returned to the classroom after two years of online learning. We hosted our first in-person banquet in two years. This summer was very busy for Umpqua Watersheds as we hosted several events and activities including River Appreciation Day, Camp AmeriCorps, the Twin Lakes Wilderness Campout, and Kids in Nature.

On Saturday, September 24th Umpqua Watersheds and the Native Fish Society will host the 38th annual river cleanup. Give Bob Hoehne a call at 541-679-7077 or email for details.

On Saturday, October 8th, we will have our first Umpqua Brew Fest at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. It has always been a major fundraiser for the organization as well as a great opportunity to celebrate our community. There will be great music, food, games, and of course, the best beer on the planet. We are proud of our local breweries and for all the breweries that come to the Umpqua to support our event. It will be so great to see everyone together again and celebrate our community while raising funds to support our programs.
