Wow! Spring has sprung! Turkeys are gobbling everywhere, froggies are a huge chorus in the evening, Meadow swallows zooming around, ducks and Canadian geese on the pond, a Peregrine falcon hunting over the meadow, Blue herons stalking the river and of course deer sauntering throughout the property!
The green house is FULL of tropical milkweed in BLOOM!
We are selling these as annuals and soooo inexpensive. Call 541-287-0172 to get yours.
They attract butterflies like crazy and Monarchs can only lay eggs on milkweed.

BIGGEST NEWS: SEASON OPENING JUNE 7, 2013
NATURE FESTIVAL is shaping up and will offer lots of FREE fun for families and kids! Puppets show, frog races, dance, music, food, scavenger hunt, ....lots more!
BUTTERFLY FLYWAY PROJECT : Our volunteers come and plant a native milkweed garden at your non-sprayed location for FREE and tend it for one year. Milkweed is disappearing all over the west coast due to spraying and removal – but Monarch Butterflies cannot exist without it! So their numbers are down dramatically also. Help us feed the wild Monarch caterpillars and support this amazing native species.
KIDS FREE NATURE CAMP DAYS! Second Sundays of the month June – October 2013. Click on the Rusk Ranch Nature Center News on the left for dates.
