Duane Garner- Executive Director

I have worked for CCPRD since June of 2000, and have called Prineville my home for over 21 years.  I have spent the majority of my career working in the Parks and Recreation field, and I enjoy this wonderful friendly community.  I am blessed to be “Dad” to three boys, and three girls, and have been married to my lovely wife Sarah since 2002.  Some interests of mine include: participating on local boards; Chamber of Commerce, Crook County Parks and Rec. Foundation, Redeemer Ministries Uganda.  I also enjoy playing the piano, as well as getting outside and exploring the many outdoor recreation opportunities that Central Oregon has to offer.  I am passionate about keeping our parks and open spaces beautiful and available for all to enjoy.  I also love people!  Your phone call or visit is always welcome.


Donna DeHaan- Business Manager

I am new to the CCPRD staff beginning my new career as Business Manager in June 2018.  I worked for over 25 years as a medical transcriptionist at the Madras and Prineville hospitals and moonlighting at home transcribing for private clinics in the evenings.  I am so excited to now put my business administration degree to use after my detour so many years ago! My grandparents moved to Prineville in 1948 so I am a third generation Crook County resident who has lived in Prineville the majority of my life only moving away for college.  I raised my son and daughter here and my daughter and son-in-law have recently moved back to raise my granddaughters here. In my spare time I love spending time in the Ochocos camping, hunting, fishing, riding my ATV and geocaching with my family. My other happy place is the Oregon Coast where I love to take my grandchildren.  Taking cruises is also a passion of mine having just completed #7 with my mom to Alaska last year. I am so blessed to live in such a wonderful community that offers so many recreational opportunities for all ages and I look forward to meeting new people as they come in to sign up for activities.
