Subject: Ríos to Rivers Event in Klamath Falls: This Friday
I want to first extend a huge thank you to all of you for supporting the youth from the Klamath Basin and Patagonia Chile who had the opportunity to explore the Klamath River Watershed this summer. The time you took to meet with students, help reach out to and support local youth, and to teach students about the Klamath Watershed made this program a full and memorable experience to all the participants.
Eight students from the Klamath Field Program with be traveling to Chile in just over a month. We have one more outreach event and fundraiser scheduled prior to the second part of the trip on this Friday, January 19th from 6-8pm at Gaucho Collective in Klamath Falls, Oregon. We will show a draft film with footage from this summer’s field program and present a slide show. There will be Pizza from Rodeos, root beer floats, beer available by donation, and a raffle, with the grand prize of a rafting trip for two on the Upper Klamath River, donated by Indigo Creek Outfitters.
This event is free and open to the public. Donations to Ríos to Rivers for this event will go directly to the cost of students’ travel to Chile this February. Please join us to learn more about the Ríos to Rivers program, the Klamath Field trip this summer, and to discuss about threats and restoration opportunities to the rivers of Chile and the Klamath Basin!
Please extend the invitation to anyone who might be interested. This is a youth friendly event.
Thanks again for your support, and we hope to see you on Friday!

In the Summer of 2017 Rios to Rivers came and spent 3 days with the Klamath Tribes… below are just a few great memories.
