ABIQUIU – Quickly rising waters destroyed parts of Ghost Ranch last Tuesday night.  Debra Hepler, Executive Director reported that Ghost Ranch has lost the following areas and facilities: Pot Hollow, Short House, Pole Barn, the Low Ropes Course and equipment shed, and the brand new Fiber Arts Studio.

“One of our volunteers, Maureen Fitzgibbon, literally alerted and evacuated everyone to safety from the Fiber Arts studio at the last minute, including a sight-impaired woman and her service dog,” she adds. *

All guest and staff are safe and sound.

Guests enrolled in classes in the effected areas are being moved to other classes currently, and in the upcoming months.

The damage is extensive. Ghost Ranch does have flood insurance and an adjuster is currently assessing the damage. Because Ghost Ranch has a $100,000 deductible on its flood insurance policy, all gifts are welcome. Visit the Ghost Ranch website to make an online gift
