Restoration Along Oregon's John Day River at Longview Ranch


Located along Central Oregon's historic Route 19 in Kimberly, Longview Ranch maintains 30,000 stunning acres of diverse landscape. Eight miles of the John Day River flows through the middle of the property, which operates primarily for the purpose of raising grass-fed cattle.

For years, the spring runoffs of the John Day River flowed through the ranch, causing massive flooding along the banks. In an effort to combat this devastation and reestablish vegetation, Longview Ranch implemented a restoration project, including the introduction of a large number of trees and willows. The ranch remains committed to responsible, sustainable practices, and each year invests in the prevention of noxious weeds that could injure the land and its neighboring farms.

Longview Ranch's efforts along the John Day River have produced successful riparian zone restoration and the promotion of a rich, biodiverse habitat.
