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.
The Crest and Vesper Meadow Education Program will be hosting restoration work parties every Thursday and Saturday from May 8 until July 31. The Crest will be hosting work parties on Thursdays, starting at 10am. Vesper Meadow will be hosting work parties on Saturdays, starting at 9am.
Join one or all of these work parties and help steward these unique and beautiful upland meadows in the Rogue Valley. Find more information and register below.
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.
