Fish Art and Beer: Fight the Pebble Mine and Conserve the Deschutes

Via Moldy Chum:

Artist extraordinaire Bob White just announced his studio will donate 25% of print sales to the Sportsman’s Alliance for Alaska to help stop the Pebble Mine.

The Deschutes Brewery recently made a one billion gallon annual water restoration commitment to it's namesake river through the Deschutes River Conservancy's water leasing program. 
Through the program, local farmers are paid for the lease of their irrigation water and then that water is legally protected instream. In the spring and summer, water flows are greatly decreased in the river due to irrigation withdrawals. By increasing flows in the Deschutes River through the leasing program, fish habitat is revitalized and water quality is improved.
