At Pine Stump we are excited to offer you a variety of nature-oriented activities. All of these activities center out of our location on the Colville Indian Reservation in Okanogan County, some 12 miles east of the town of Omak.
Pine Stump originated with the idea of living in harmony with the land and, if we were lucky, making a living that supported us and our various efforts up here. As you can see by the contents at left, we have many interests. All of these activities center out of our location on the Colville Indian Reservation in Okanogan County, some 12 miles east of the town of Omak.
The first steps were to clear the forest, which had been logged in the 1930s and then left, resulting in dense thickets of suppressed growth Ponderosa Pine. Some of the valuable lessons learned through that process are revealed in the Timber page. A solid Timber Management Plan is invaluable in developing resources as well as protecting the ecosystem.
Building a barn to house some of the animals came next. Horses are an integral part of Pine Stump and a basis for Pack Trips, for a few hours or several days, as well as Therapeutic Horsemanship experiences.
Goats provide milk, cheese, and meat as well as entertainment and demanding constant fence tending.
Cultural exchanges and farm internships provide a mechanism to broaden the horizons and share common interests with people from a far-reaching geographic range.
