Open Space Day at Prairie Canyon Ranch 2013

On August 24, 2013, Historic Douglas County, Inc. and Douglas County Open Space and Natural Resources co-sponsored Open Space Day at Prairie Canyon Ranch. This was a superbly appointed event with activity for the whole family …from trail rides and hiking to learning such pioneering skills as churning butter and numerous types of educational learning such as seeing …and, hearing about and seeing the Devon oxen that pulled the Conestoga wagons in the 1860s, bringing the pioneers who homesteaded Douglas County and significantly contributed to the development of Douglas County as we know it today. If you missed this superb event, the following picture collages will give you a bit of a feel that you shouldn’t have missed it.
