Celebrating our 24th birthday!

An incredible 199 people signed up for our Annual Celebration & Fundraiser this year! Long time fish advocate Bill Bakke was our Keynote Speaker this year. Our Riffle Awards for outstanding contribution to the Council during the past year went to Oregon Dept of Fish & Wildlife (agency partner), Treecology (business partner), Rose CDC (community partner), Bilquist Elementary (educational partner) and the Ernie Francisco Award for an individual volunteer went to Carol “Caz” Zyvatkauskas.
