The Great Outdoors: Washington Family Ranch


For nearly a century, folks in Wasco and Jefferson counties knew the muddy ranch for the sheep and cattle that were raised on it for the Prineville Land and Livestock Company. However, in the 1980’s everything changed when a cult took over the property and embroiled the ranch and the nearby town of Antelope in four years of controversy.

For this week’s Great Outdoors, Brian Jennings takes us to Wasco County where that same ranch is now being used to inspire children.

A special thanks to our Great Outdoors sponsor, Camp Abbot Trading Company in Sunriver, for giving us the time and resources to explore the lakes, rivers and mountains across our beautiful state every Wednesday night on Central Oregon Daily.
