Ochoco Creek Fall Instream Cleanup -
Rotary Club of Crook County and Deschutes Land Trust are teaming up to do a Fall cleanup of Ochoco Creek on October 19th. We will be concentrating on the core portion of the Creek, from 3rd Street to Harwood Street in an effort to remove the trash in Ochoco Creek prior to the winter. Volunteers will be in teams of four with two in the Creek and two on the banks to provide safety and support. Shore crews will assist in cleaning trash along the banks. Each team will be assigned a section to focus on. Cleanup should take less than two hours to thoroughly clean a section. Please let us know if you have waders and are willing to be in the creek. Minimum age to be in the creek is 18 unless you have an adult guardian with you, then the minimum age is 13 years. Families are welcome. Younger chlidren can concentrate on banks and along the pathway to get trash that will likely get blown into the creek if left over the winter.
Weather in Ocotober can be variable, so please watch the weather and come prepared for changing conditions. In stream volunteers may wish to bring neoprene gloves and a walking or wading stick for support. Shore crew members should have boots with good traction. Rubber boots can be helpful, especially if it has rcently rained. Also advisable is sunscreen, a hat, and eye protection or sunglasses.
We will provide latex gloves, bags and pickers. Registration will begin at 12:00 and cleanup work will start at 1:00. Join us at Ochoco Brewery for a celebratory drink after the clean-up. There will be Happy Hour drink prices and free finger food provided.
