In an effort to promote the northern area of Central Oregon, a series of workshops will be offered beginning in November.

 

The Rural Tourism Studio is a multi day  program that covers everything about tourism from planning to marketing.

 

Joe Krenowicz with the Madras Chamber of Commerce says they have even given the area a regional brand.  "What it is, is an effort in regards to our tourism opportunities in Jefferson County and Crook County we've collaborated with Travel Oregon. And we're looking to see how we can take the northern portion of Central Oregon and market it as another segment of Central Oregon. And we've branded it as "River Canyon Country."

 

The area included in River Canyon Country includes Madras, Culver, Prineville, Terrebonne, Powell Butte, Warm Springs and the Ochoco National Forest and Grasslands.

 

The cost is $30 for the series of workshops.  Contact the Crook County or Madras Chambers of Commerce for more information.
