Things to know when planning a visit to Willow-Witt Ranch for camp, a hike, or to visit the Farm Store: All visitors and staff must wear masks in common areas, and keep 6' physical distance. Visitors may not enter the barns or pens, but may pet goats and chickens through the fences. When shopping, please tell a staff person what you would like and we will bring your items to you; our Farm Store does not allow space for distancing. Handwash stations are conveniently located at the farm and campground...please use them. Learn more about visiting.

Cultivating the connection between people and nature

The Crest at Willow-Witt is an educational non-profit organization based at Willow-Witt Ranch, in the mountains of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument east of Ashland, Oregon. Through self-guided tours, public events, school programs, and summer camps, we help visitors of all ages explore their roles and responsibilities in our dynamic local ecosystems.

SOME HISTORY

About the land

We acknowledge that the Athapaskan, Shasta, and Takelma peoples stewarded these lands for millennia. We also acknowledge the intergenerational trauma caused by their forcible removal from their ancestral lands. The people whose ancestors lived on this land are now citizens of The Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Indians, The Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, or The Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde.
