Life as a Days at Dunrovin Member

Being a member of the Days At Dunrovin community means getting to know new people from across the world in a safe, respectful place, sharing experiences together and forming real friendships. It means joining in the daily activities of a real Montana guest ranch where interesting people from all walks of life gather to learn about and enjoy nature and animals,  where life is both as spontaneous as s summer's thunder storm and as tightly scheduled as a television program.

Members tag along with experts to discuss all manner of topics related to birds, horses, dogs, photography, farming, and the arts and sciences. Most importantly, members are able to take on whatever role feels most comfortable - that of an "on looker", an active conversationalist, a participant in a science or community project, an organizer who works with the Dunrovin team to create new learning opportunities, or a guest blogger.

Becoming a member of the Days At Dunrovin community means entering a world unto itself, where people are treated with kindness, where there is lots to watch and read and talk about, and where you are able to pop in at any time to fill a minute or an hour having fun with friends.

Our Events

The Days At Dunrovin calendar lists three types of events...

1. A DR event is an un-programmed, naturally occurring ranch event - things like feeding the horses and holding pony club riding lessons. These events may or may not be tightly scheduled, as ranch life can often veer off course. Ranch participants may, or may not, wear a microphone to talk with viewers as they do their ranch work; and a web camera operator may or may not be available to closely follow the action

2. A D@D event is a tightly scheduled, programmed, organized event that is produced much like a TV show. A web camera operator is on duty to follow the action and our professional sound system is used for quality audio. D@D events are routinely scheduled for Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday afternoons and evenings

3. A CHAT event indicates that members will gather in a specific CHAT room at a specific time to discuss a specific topic. Guest chatters commonly participate in these chat sessions to facilitate the conversations.

Why Do I Have to Pay a Membership Fee?

Viewers who initially gathered around Dunrovin's osprey nest web camera guided the design of the DaysAtDunrovin web site. They identified two critical features that they wanted in our site:  

1. They wanted a SAFE space where they could chat and post without fear of bulling or disrespect.

2. They wanted an ad-free site where they were treated like real people rather than consumers.

The subscription fee addresses both of these important issues. It creates a gated, safe community where mutual respect is expected from all who join; and it raises the money needed to support the site without having to resort to advertising.

Our hope is that the membership fee also promotes ownership. We want members to have a stake in the community and to work collaboratively with us to create something truly exceptional.

Interested in a Scholarship?

Finally, because we don't want to eliminate people from our community who share our values but simply can't afford the membership fee, we offer scholarships. Click Here to find out more about our scholarship program.

What's Happening at Days at Dunrovin?

Farming at Dunrovin

When Susie the rancher meets Timmy the farmer, things happen! Susie is Dunrovin Ranch owner, SuzAnne Miller, and Timmy is ABC Acres owner, Tim Southwell. ABC Acres is opening Dunrovin Ranch's eyes to an entirely new way of seeing cultivated land. Need shade for the horses? Grow a climbing fence of hops which have medicinal qualities for humans and livestock alike, while providing fruit for making beer. What could be better?

Meet the Dunrovin Horses

The history of the horse is the history of humanity. Dunrovin's horses are true partners in every since of the word. Their well being, health, and happiness are intertwined with our own. We collaborate with such master horsemen as Montana's Brandon Carpenter to make sure that our horses receive the finest of training and care and to bring the joy of knowing and loving horses to the wider world.

Meet the Dunrovin Dogs

Dogs rule at Dunrovin. They love it here. There are endless adventures to be had and lots of people with lots of hands for petting and offering treats. Dunrovin's resident master dog trainer, Mackenzie Cole, has dedicated much of his life to enhancing the partnership between dogs and humans. He is here to help us all be the best possible human a dog could have.

Meet the Dunrovin Birds

The ospreys' nest web camera has opened our eyes, ears, hearts, and minds to the world of birds like nothing else could have. Getting to know individual birds with their unique personalities makes us feel more connected to all of nature and helps us understand the complexity of each animal's life. We share more than we think. We can easily identify with them as they struggle to survive and thrive.

Fun with Dunrovin Photography

Digital cameras and cell phones have given everyone the equipment for quality photography - and moving through life with a camera in your hand makes you more aware of your surroundings and puts you in the moment. Dunrovin wants to make the most of photography and use our cameras to really see the world. Enter photographic artist, John Ashley, to guide all of us on how to capture the beauty, the emotion, and the spirit of life as it appears before the camera's lens.

Fun with Dunrovin Reads

Heinrich Mann's said it best: "A house without books is like a room without windows." Dunrovin is located near Missoula, Montana, which John Updike once dubbed "the Paris of the West" because of the number of authors that call it home. This proximity brings author and UM professor, Judy Blunt, as our literary host to create a cyber book club like no other. What a treat to read a book and then discuss it with the author and/or others with deep connections to the book!
