Opportunity Details

2022 Spring Ochoco Creek and CCPRD Park's Earth Day Cleanup

The Rotary Club of Crook County is once again teaming up with Crook County Parks and Recreation, Deschutes Land Trust, SOLVE, Crook County, Republic Services and Crooked Roots Brewing to do an in stream cleanup of Ochoco Creek before high water hits and a general Parks Clean-up.  Following the cleanup, we'll meet at Crooked Roots Brewing to celebrate our success. There will be complimentary finger food and happy hour pricing on the brews

Volunteers are needed to do both a thorough instream and bankside cleanup of Ochoco Creek and uplands Park cleanup on March 26th. 

For the Ochoco Creek Cleanup

Our reach of Ochoco Creek to cleanup is from Combs Flat Rd to Gardner Street, within the City of Prineville. 

Due to the complexities of working in the creek, no one under 12 will be allowed to be in the Creek itself and youths between 12-18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.   Any age can help clean up the banks and along Ochoco Creek pathway, but children under 12 should have a parent or designated guardian with them. 

If you would like to join us, here are a few things to know:

• Registration will begin at noon at Pioneer Park (the park next to the Court House on 3rd Street), and cleanup work will start around 12:30 p.m.

• Volunteers will work in teams of four, with two people staged on the bank in support and safety of those working in stream.

• Each team will be assigned a section to focus on. We anticipate it will take about 2 hours to thoroughly clean a section.

• Trash bags, pickers and latex gloves will be provided.

• Bring rubber or other boots with traction for muddy and wet bank conditions, waders and neoprene gloves for those doing instream work, warm clothes, sunscreen, hat, eye protection/sunglasses, walking or wading stick for support.

Be prepared for changing conditions, including winter weather and varying water levels.

Please sign up Solve Oregon’s website as it really helps Carol organize teams and reduces the amount of time spent filling out forms.  If you have waders, please let Carol know by emailing carolbenkosky@gmail.com   If you want to be paired with a specific person(s) or have a full team, please also email that information to Carol   

 

For the Upland Parks Cleanup
