GRANT-KOHRS RANCH FOUNDATION
'…is to provide resources to Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site to tell the cattle ranching story of the American West."
The Grant-Kohrs Ranch Foundation was recently formed to encourage those who appreciate "America's Ranch," to help the National Park Service maintain high quality public services and ranch care. Currently, the Foundation is building an Endowment Fund, and supporting key park projects with funds raised from individual and private donations. These wholly independent 501 c 3 funds are granted back to the park to achieve excellence in public programs and innovation in resource management. The ten member Board meets 3-4 times annually at the ranch, and is comprised of local, state and national leaders. For more information visit the Grant-Kohrs Ranch Foundation website or contact Marshall Gingery, President of the Board, GKRF, P.O. Box 789 , Deer Lodge, MT 59722.
Did You Know?
Cattle drives rarely went more than ten or twelve miles a day. The cattle had to be given time to rest and graze. A drive from Texas to Montana could take up to five months. Kohrs bought two-year-old steers and brought them north to graze on the rich grasses of eastern Montana.
