We want to invite you to join us on our newest adventure in the making: Observer Ranch!

Observer Ranch will be an educational campground and learning center in central Colorado. We aim to share and effectively communicate research related to the sun’s impact on Earth, to teach skills to aid in sustainable practices of gardening, homesteading, agriculture, and to counter the lack of awareness and narrative of fear surrounding some of these topics. In addition to having RV sites and cabins, we will offer day classes and events in our Learning Center and Library, and return to hosting our annual Observing The Frontier conference series!

Campground for Today, Education for Tomorrow.

Observer Ranch Updates: May 2023

Our support building now has drywall! We’ll be finishing up smoothing the walls out over the next few weeks, and we are staking water/sewer taps for our RV sites. Stucco will be going on the exterior of our support building this month. We are excited to host our next event on September 23 at Tempered Tomahawk – see details below, we hope you can join us!¬†
Come join us at Tempered Tomahawk and meet other Observers, create connections, and talk about the latest science news. We’ll discuss progress on the development of Observer Ranch Learning Center & Campground, brainstorm ideas for future events, programming to support the community, enjoy lunch and have some competitive fun together throwing axes!

…I cannot stress the importance of the work of yourself and the Observers at large have had on my life…
