The Paladin Conservancy was founded in 2018 by Doug Averill, a lifetime resident of Bigfork, Montana. Homesteaded in 1886, Wrangler Springs was successfully farmed for years and has a colorful history. Encompassing 500 acres, the property includes productive farm ground, livestock areas, a large spring and beautiful creek. The goal at Wrangler Springs is to expose youth to a wide variety of new experiences by giving them the opportunity to take pride in a hard day’s work, get their hands dirty and learn life skills that are quickly becoming lost in today’s younger generation.

The farm experience will introduce
hands-on life skills to balance with our
culture’s high-tech lifestyle.
