Rogue River Night in Portland set for April 1st

The first annual “Rogue River Night” is slated for April 1st at Shorebank Pacific (1101 SW Washington Street) from 6:30 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. Southern Oregon’s Rogue River, one of the eight original Wild and Scenic Rivers from 1968, is poised to gain additional Wild and Scenic River miles. Wild and Scenic status offers protection to rivers and streams from further development or degradation. The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act protects many of the most popular wilderness rivers in the United States.

The evening will showcase Rogue River photography by Roger Dorband, a discussion by a representative from the Save the Wild Rogue Campaign, and offer perspectives from guides and staff of Rogue River Journeys, a Rogue River whitewater rafting outfitter. Appetizers will also be served.

Those who wish to attend the event are asked to RSVP either online (http://tinyurl.com/ye3o6g3) or by calling Rogue River Journeys at 1-866-213-7754.
