The Butterfly Pavilion, a project of Rusk Ranch Nature Center, is focused on kids, families and visitors to our area.
Using native species and the help of volunteers, the Butterfly Pavilion offers an interactive learning environment for area youth. The Pavilion also helps preserve threatened species such as the Western Monarch.
School age children are offered the opportunity to observe, learn and help with the growth and nurturing of the caterpillars and butterflies. High school age youth are offered community service experience to act as docents and helpers for butterfly workshops.
In addition, the Butterfly Pavilion is available during the visitor season as a destination activity, thereby enhancing our community, and complimenting other visitor destinations in the area such as the Oregon Caves National Monument, Kerbyville Museum and Great Cats World Park.
Visit the Butterfly Pavilion and walk with the butterflies!
Volunteers are welcome . . . Join us for this beneficial endeavor for kids!
