The Empire Ranch Foundation (ERF) is a non-profit 501c3 volunteer organization that was established in 1997.
Acting in cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the purpose of the Foundation is to protect, restore and sustain the Empire Ranch historical buildings and landscape as an outstanding western heritage and education center.
Dedicated volunteers have been key to preserving the historic Empire Ranch House and Headquarters. Please join us on Saturday, May 6, 2023.
