The Crest 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.
The Crest is hosting our 3rd annual Turtle Trot fundraiser 5k trail race now through September 30th. Funds will support outdoor education programs, classes and field trips for students from surrounding school districts.

We have a variety of programs for schools, community groups, and families to come and experience The Crest. Whether one night at our campground or summer day camps for school-age children, there’s plenty to explore, learn and enjoy.
We acknowledge that the Shasta, Upland Takelma, Latgawa and Athabaskan 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.
