Broken Arrow Ranch

Our founders donated the Broken Arrow Ranch to City Kids to create a home base for all of our summer programs. In December 1997, the City Kids Wilderness Project Board of Directors deeded a conservation easement to the Jackson Hole Land Trust, protecting forever the open spaces of the 62-acre Broken Arrow Ranch.

The name "Broken Arrow" honors a nineteenth century treaty between new world settlers and Native Americans to bring peace to the wilderness. The arrow was broken to symbolize the end of war. Today, the ranch provides crucial winter range for moose, mule deer and elk and it is a critical migratory artery between the Hoback River and surrounding Wyoming and Gros Ventre Ranges. We think the ranch is a wonderful environment for an extraordinary migration of city kids to the wilderness.

A former guest ranch, Broken Arrow is nestled between the Hoback River and the Bridger-Teton National Forest seventeen miles south of Jackson
