Once work on the second phase is complete, Deschutes Land Trust plans to plant tens of thousands of native plants and grasses to repopulate the area with the vegetation and restore its natural appearance. Then, in the spring of 2025, if funding is sufficient, the organization will begin work on phase 3, which will focus on the remainder of the Crooked River as well as proposed trails and footbridges that connect the Ochoco Preserve to the nearby Wetlands Complex.
