The last weeks of school are full of excitement about the upcoming summer, so a field trip is the best thing for a bunch of restless students. Spencer Tolbert's sixth grade students and also some seventh graders enjoyed a day of activities at Crooked River Lighthouse Park.

Climbing the 103-foot tower was a highlight of the outing which included hands-on exploring with laser lights and prisms, a tour of the keeper's house museum, a scavenger hunt and trying out the clothes wringer in the newly restored 1895 wash house. Everyone enjoyed the 70 foot wooden pirate ship in the picnic area

Visit this city park and see the lighthouse any day from dawn ‘til dusk. Visit the museum Thursday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Tower climbing available on the weekends ( or Thursday and Friday too, if we have enough volunteers!) The museum is full of fascinating local maritime history. Arrangements can be made for a special educational program for small group visits during the summer. Please call 697-2732 and leave a message.
