Projects – Let’s Grow Together

Things are certainly looking good at Timberline these days! We have completed many significant upgrades to the property, and there are still more in the planning stages.

The past several years or so have been busy with building, and we are now finished Phase I and Phase II. See below for some specifics, and see the site plan of how it will all eventually fit together.

We also want to extend a big Thank You to all of our corporate donors, who have each played an important role in these projects.

How Can I Help?

The only thing stopping any of these projects are the precious resources of time and money. If you have either available to you, and you would like to help see some of these projects happen, we would be glad to talk to you. We need volunteers to help build (preferably with some trades skill and experience), we need materials to be donated, and we need, well, money! As a non-profit society, we will of course, issue tax receipts where appropriate.

If you can help in any of these ways, please call our Property Manager, Doug McDougall, at 604-463-9278, ext. 23 or email him at property@timberlineranch.com. Alternatively, you can contact our Executive Director, Craig Douglas, at 604-463-9278, ext. 26, or craig@timberlineranch.com. Also, you can now quickly and easily donate online.

Thank you for your interest and support of Timberline Ranch.
