School groups can make appointments to visit - no charge for school groups over 10 students. The Natural Playground is a blast!

    BUTTERFLY PLANTS: We sell milkweed plants, seeds of 3 types of milkweed and starts of local milkweed. Call 541-287-0172 to get yours. They attract butterflies like crazy and Monarchs can only lay eggs on milkweed.

    BUTTERFLY FLYWAY PROJECT: Get native milkweed starts for your garden at your non-sprayed location. Order now in bulk for Spring 2017-18. 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.
