ITS TIME TO TANGLEBOX

 

The 2018 Tanglebox season has begun and includes a stop at Miller Woods. Tangleboxing is an outdoor summertime treasure hunt. Participants follow clues, find the boxes, record their discoveries and compete for prizes. It is great family fun for all ages and is a good way to visit and discover Yamhill County Parks and Miller Woods. Passports are $5 and you can click More Information to find locations to purchase your passport.

CRUICKSHANK WOODLAND TOUR ATTRACTS 5TH GRADERS FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTY

587 fifth grade students enjoyed the outdoor classroom setting at the 57th  Annual Cruickshank Woodland Tour in McMinnville. The beautiful woods, owned my Doris and Dave Cruickshank, provided a beautiful and serene backdrop for students as they visited six educational stations:

  • Soil & Watersheds presented by NRCS
  • Plants and Wildlife presented by Outdoor Education Adventures
  • Forest Harvest and Products presented by Talk About Trees
  • Forest Management presented by OSU Extension Foresters
  • Fire Prevention & Safety presented by McMinnville Fire Department
  • Outdoor Behavior and Safety presented by Yamhill County Sheriff’s Department

Thank you to the volunteers and staff who worked together to create a successful experience for the kids and a special thank you to Dave and Doris Cruickshank for preparing the trails and allowing students to learn about respecting nature and being safe in this beautiful environment.
