About High Desert History Pub
Discover how ranchers restored 3,000 acres of former potato and barley fields back to native sage-steppe habitat and witnessed an explosion of wildlife abundance and diversity. Jeff Russell and Lee Reynaud, owner and manager, respectively, of Teton Waters Ranch, Idaho, discuss navigating myriad obstacles in creating a 5,000-acre cattle ranch producing grass-fed, organic beef. Jeff and Lee will discuss the significant economic challenges and rewards of large-scale sustainable agriculture and its extraordinary conservation benefits.
Join us for beer and history, sponsored by the the High Desert Museum, Des Chutes Historical Museum, the Oregon Encyclopedia, and McMenamins, in which you'll hear lively local and regional history while you enjoy a frosty pint or two of handcrafted ale.
