“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” ~Henry David Thoreau
We have been "green" here at the Wild Echo Bison Reserve long before it was cool! The entire ranch is "off the grid" to begin with. That means that we are not hooked up to any power company (we're too remote for that) and we are self reliant when it comes to power. Our camp (in fact, our entire ranch including our year-round home) is powered by wind and sun. Since Bison Quest is all about a camping and wilderness experience (albeit with massages and king size beds - we're not exactly roughing it), we really don't need too much electricity.
One of the most exciting things about our Bison Quest program, is proving to others that you don't have to give up quality of life to save energy and live in a way that is kind to our world. Most of "being green" is just thinking about what you're doing before you do it. Many of us don't give much thought to how items are packaged, what energy we use or how we throw things away.
If this piques your curiosity, if you want to see what it would take, or just want a vacation that will expose you to a different way of living, then try "a green life" here at Bison Quest.
You aren’t limited by where you are or what you have, you are limited by the choices you make. Choosing to “live green” and simplify your life doesn’t have to be all or nothing; it’s just making slight changes to your current lifestyle.
Experience a different kind of vacation – the kind that can change the way you live.
