Pelton Round Butte Fund
Through the Pelton Round Butte Fund, we support local watershed and conservation groups with fish passage, habitat conservation, and water quality efforts throughout the Deschutes River Basin.
The Pelton Round Butte Fund was set up to protect and enhance habitat for Deschutes River fish.
In partnership with the Tribes, we’ve supported over 45 projects to date.
We’re on track to award $21 million by 2020 for projects such as removing fish passage barriers, stabilizing stream banks, restoring channels and floodplains and conserving water.
