We are up and running at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site!
Our opening weekend sheep shearing event was fantastic! The weather was wonderful, and we had a super turnout and everywhere you went families were enjoying themselves. A great way to start out the season! We hope you and your family join us in celebrating Family Fourth! I am always amazed at how fast the summers fly by. Please plan to be at the Ranch as we celebrate our nation’s birthday.
Congratulations to Melissa Keown for her promotion to full-time lead interpreter. Melissa started out as a volunteer and then as part time lead interpreter. She applied for and was offered the full-time position. I am very pleased she accepted the offer.
The ADA project has been completed with all new sidewalks around the pond area and up to the barn. This was much needed, and we are happy to have easier access for all of us.
The 30th street project is set to switch the construction from north of Gateway Road to south of Gateway Road. This means that traffic will have to come from Garden of the Gods or Mesa on the north to access the Garden of the Gods or Rock Ledge Ranch. While this project has been disruptive, I have no doubt that when this project is completed, things will be much improved.
When you come out to visit, visit the General Store and check out all the wonderful and unique gifts that are for sale. Many of the items are made by Ranch employees and volunteers.
I hope that you and your families have a happy and safe summer and I look forward to seeing you at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site!
