Discover Your Forest presents Stars Over Newberry
Stars Over Newberry is the largest annual fundraising event for Discover Your Forest which supports stewardship, conservation education and volunteer programs in Central Oregon’s National Forests. Attendees will delight at stargazing, live music, an art auction, and fabulous local beer, wine, and cuisine. Join us atop Lava Butte at the Newberry National Volcanic Monument for this special after-hours celebration. Guests will get a one-of-a-kind experience atop Lava Butte, one of Central Oregon’s most well-known volcanic features with breathtaking views of the valley and the night sky. In partnership with the US Forest Service, Discover Your Forest provides free educational programming for over 6,000 school children annually throughout the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests. In addition, Discover Your Forest supports over 2,000 volunteers in the Deschutes National Forest and interacts with over 200,000 visitors per year. Funds raised at this event will go directly to supporting programs and visitor services on the Deschutes National Forest.
