Learning about wildlife species through Fin, Fire and Feather
Fin, Fire, and Feather is a hands-on learning experience held at Ochoco Creek Park for students in 1st through 3rd grade. It is an annual event in Crook County, and has been going on for about 20 years. Students rotate through learning stations which are hosted by many agencies including the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department, Crook County Parks and Recreation, Crook County Search and Rescue, Central Oregon Fire Management Service, Crooked River Watershed Council, and many other groups.
The purpose of the outdoor educational day is to teach children about our native fish and wildlife species and their habitats. The students also learn about fire safety and how to stay safe in the outdoors. Fin, Fire, and Feather is an engaging and exciting opportunity for Crook County students to experience and learn more about the outdoor world around them.
