Smith Rock's Park Manager Decides to Move South

Park Manager Scott Brown is moving south—to La Pine State Park, that is. After 9 years at Smith Rock, Brown has seen an exponential rise in visitation, doubling since he’s been here to close to 900,000 people per year. He’s been at the confluence of competing groups of park users along with area residents as they hammer out a new Master Plan to address that growth since the last plan from 20 years ago. But that’s not why he’s chosen to leave.
