The True North Ranch
Folks at The True North Ranch are not only friendly, they're eco-friendly. Owen and Peggy Sue Snoey of LaCenter, Washington, are using their 5-acre enclave to teach their children and friends how they can help the environment.
The little ranch, home to a herd of alpacas, geese, ducks, chickens, and a dog, lies within view of the sheared-off dome of Mt. St. Helen's volcano, visible from the backyard. The Snoeys have been there five years, busily making the acreage a garden paradise and learning center for their two children, Ken, 6, and Rae, 8.
Owen, a sailor, named their home the True North Ranch in reference to the Polaris, or North Star. Their mission is to create an atmosphere where they can all be eco-friendly in every way.
"The kids when grown will probably say, 'You knew all about global warming. Why didn't you do something?' " says Peggy Sue. "We can say, 'We did!' "
