The Central Oregon Youth Conservation Crew hires young people to do manual labor in the forests.

This year 103 youth worked for 8 weeks throughout the area, putting in over 35,000 hours of labor pulling weeds, maintaining trails and reducing hazardous fuels with the C.O.Y.C.C.

There will be an Awards Picnic this Thursday at Shevlin Park for them.

Tory Kurtz, the Public Affairs Officer of the Ochoco National Forrest, says this is a chance for to thank them for their efforts, “it is a b-b-q and then also an opportunity for not only Forest Service employees to meet the youth crews, but also the youth crews to meet Forest Service employees and present a little bit about what their summer meant working on the Forest throughout the year”

Crews have contributed to projects in the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests as well as the Crooked River National Grassland and Smith Rock State Park.
