Our Mission

Connect People with Nature

A recent Nature Conservancy poll finds only 10 percent of American teens experience the outdoors everyday. Scientists are publishing experiments which show nature allows our brains to rest and re-charge. And participants report they feel happier after time outdoors. One psychologist calls it “Nature Deficit Disorder”. We live and work at the Ranch for many reasons, but our connection to nature is one.

Connect People with Our Past

Fewer Americans know anything about ranching or farming, or anyone who does it, than ever before in our history. We demonstrate daily 1880’s skills from Wyoming. We have a homeplace on the Willow Creek Ranch in Wyoming, due to the years Larry spent volunteering as a cowboy. We were blessed to be there before California and corporations bought the Old West. The Willow Creek is the true home of the “Hole in the Wall”,  Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’s famous hideout. We bring to life outlaw history, the end of the “open range” in the West and tales of the Plains Indian who made homes at Willow Creek.
