Enjoy quality time in nature, meet others and improve the health of your watershed! Come explore the beautiful Willow-Witt Ranch and build community.
Masks and social distancing required while working in groups. All work will be outside. Hand sanitizer will be provided.
We cultivate the integral connection between people and nature. We learn from nature the interdependence of humans and the air, soil, food, forest, and water upon which we all depend and the earth to which we all return.
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 offers wetland restoration and gardening volunteer work parties during the warmer months at Willow-Witt Ranch, April through October. We also provide Outdoor School programming to 5th and 6th graders in Southern Oregon, offer community education programs, and run several weeks of Nature Day Camps during the summer.
