Off-channel, on the Deschutes

- Spotlight

The Capitol Land Trust acquired the 33-acre Stewart Oxbow Preserve on the Deschutes River, protecting 1,110 feet of rare off-channel habitat that gives fish a place to rest in slow moving water. This builds off of over 25 years of collaboration with a local family to safeguard over 1.5 miles of this vital riparian corridor.
