June 24, 2017 – EVLT Ranching Heritage Tour Returns
What: Connect with our local ranching community by joining Eagle Valley Land Trust for a day-long bus tour. Visit two iconic ranches and learn from the families who live and work the land. You will hear about the challenges, successes, and changes they have seen in the ranching community and enjoy a scrumptious ranch lunch. This year’s ranches include Haymeadow Ranch and the Gates Ranch, in honor of the late Bud Gates. We’ll also take a look at the proposed Hardscrabble Ranch project, consisting of nearly 1,500 acres along Brush Creek Road.
