Buck Norred Ranch Paint-Over
|On 9/21/01, Earth Core kids and members of the community came to the
Buck Norred ranchsite to paint over the graffiti on the outside of the buildings.
The Buck Norred Ranch is part of Santa Teresa Park. It is located behind
Heaton Moor Drive at Brockenhurst Drive. The once-private ranch featured
horse rentals and hosted group picnics. The county bought the ranch in the
1990's. Now, the ranch buildings are unoccupied and have been a target for
taggers and vandals. Soon, a mounted park patrol will be stationed at the
ranch, which should help prevent vandalism, but they will not occupy the
buildings. The buildings will be fenced off. Here are some before and after
pictures of the ranch paint-over:
