Fun in the Water

Summer is almost here, and it looks like this weekend will give us another taste! In anticipation of all the fun we can have out on the water in the coming months, today we're sharing photos of a few Oregon children enjoying Oregon rivers, lakes and reservoirs.

Happy birthday Cathy and George!

This week Cathy Cheney and George Olson, two of our photographers who helped launch Project Dayshoot in 2013, are having birthdays! Both continue to play invaluable roles in our planning and outreach as we move forward with plans for exhibits and a book. We're thrilled to celebrate with them by sharing their images today.
