The Rotary Club of Crook County, Crook County Parks and Recreation, the Deschutes Land Trust, SOLVE, Crook County, Republic Services, and Crooked Roots Brewing are joining together for a clean-up party to remove trash from Ochoco Creek and local parks in Prineville on Sunday, October 15, 2023 from 12-2:30pm.

If you would like to join the clean-up, here are a few things to know:

  • Online registration is highly suggested, but not required.
  • Registration and check-in will begin at 12pm at Pioneer Park in Prineville (corner of Elm St and NE 2nd St).
  • Youths under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or designated guardian. Those aged 12-18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • No one under 12 will be allowed to be in the Creek itself, but can help clean up the banks and along pathways.
  • Feel free to form your own team of four people, or you will be assigned to a team.

What to bring: Hip waders and/or rubber boots with good traction (if you have them), hat, sunscreen, eye protection or sunglasses, neoprene gloves if working in the creek. Dress for varying weather.

What's provided: Trash bags, pickers, vinyl gloves, sharps containers with tongs.
