About Friends and Neighbors of the Deschutes Canyon Area
Friends and Neighbors (aka FANS) of the Deschutes Canyon area support stewardship and restoration of the wild canyons in their backyards. They also seek to foster better communications between federal and state land management agencies and surrounding communities. They were founded in 2011 by landowners surrounding the Deschutes Canyon Wilderness Study Area in Central Oregon. They also focus on many other special places, such as Steelhead Falls, Alder Springs, the Penisula, Otter Bench and Scout Camp.
