Crook County fourth-graders invited to Chimney Rock Days


On June 1 and June 4 , fourth graders from Crook County Elementary Schools will be taking part in the Prineville BLM’s annual Chimney Rock Days.

Students will visit Chimney Rock Campground on the Lower Crooked River south of Prineville for a day of environmental education. The event is geared toward getting young people outdoors and teaching them about some of the natural resources around them.

From 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. each day, students will rotate through a variety of 30-minute hands-on education stations.

All of the parts of this day are developed and staffed by employees of the Prineville BLM and showcase many of the career options open to people working with the BLM.

This year, students will be able to learn about wildlife, geology, minerals (including gold panning), soils, range, Leave No Trace, and wildfire suppression.
