The High Lonesome Ranch is more than a Guest Ranch
We are a Guest Ranch because we believe in stewarding this large western landscape and sharing it with others. We have a working model of sustainability that maintains biodiversity and ecological connectivity, enhances the lives of wildlife and fish, and preserves and restores degraded habitat while promoting a mix of uses – primarily ranching, recreation, and research. We want to expose as many people as possible to the ways we do this.
Large, resilient ecosystems and committed land stewards are among the best tools we have to conserve biodiversity against a backdrop of rising resource consumption, population growth, urbanization, and climate change.
The High Lonesome Ranch portfolio includes much more than land. HLR has collaborative conservation strategies; an independent Institute engaged in applied science and research; a forum for international dialogue; a leadership role in the Western Landowners’ Alliance (representing over 20 million acres of private land being managed for conservation outcomes) and numerous active partnerships with universities, non-profit organizations, business leaders, policy makers, legislators, and others.
