Program will air on OPB on Feb. 7 at 8:30 p.m.
Estacada High School students who worked at Cycle Oregon's 20th anniversary event last fall will appear on Oregon Public Broadcasting's Oregon Field Guide Thursday, Feb. 7 at 8:30 p.m.
Cycle Oregon is an annual weeklong event. Last year's adventure began Sept. 9 in Sisters, and made stops in small, rural towns like La Pine, Diamond Lake, Oakridge, and Rainbow. Oregon Field Guide was there to highlight these off-the-beaten-path communities and document Cycle Oregon's mission to bring these kinds of towns exposure and business.
Estacada High School music students, wrestling and equestrian team members and SAFACT (senior all night party) spent providing tent and porter service during the event. With the help of many dedicated parents, the students worked 14-hour days hauling 65-plus pound bags, tearing down 530 tents each morning and setting up 530 tents each afternoon.
Through their work, they earned money for their school activity-approximately $10,000 for each group.
This Oregon Field Guide episode will repeat Sunday, Feb. 10, at 6:30 p.m. on OPB.
