From Ranch to Crest 

Since 1985, Suzanne Willow and Lanita Witt have been stewards of the unique world that is Willow-Witt Ranch. To ensure that their legacy of conservation and restoration will continue, they founded the non-profit organization The Crest at Willow-Witt.


The mission of  The Crest is to create a nourishing connection between people and the natural world. We will illuminate the people-land connection and cultivate love and respect for nature through a variety of programs for all ages. We will give our visitors an intimate experience of the forest and farm ecosystems that comprise Willow-Witt Ranch. Through hands-on activities we will foster an appreciation and understanding for farming, cooking, caring for animals and caring
for the land that supports all those activities.


The vision for The Crest is that it will continue to be preserved as a sacred sanctuary for the
surrounding community.  It will be a place treasured for its beautifully restored land as well as the high quality programs and events that are offered to the community on all aspects of
environmental sustainability.
