Illinois Valley — Help bring on the butterflies!

Anise Swallowtail Caterpillar…

Our spiritual sister Diane sent this heads-up. Sounds like a good chance to escape the cocoon and learn to fly this Saturday and next weekend too…

Two-Tailed Swallowtail...

Hi All – This is a call for helpers to get landscape and construction work on the Butterfly Pavilion done.

We have the hoop house up – we need to take advantage of the great weather to get the flower beds shaped, the shade cloth over the hoop house, hang gates on several gateways through the deer netting and the gift shop started.  If outdoor work is not your thing, we have a couple of sit down jobs that could also be done. For all who can put in hours we can offer membership in the Rusk Ranch Nature Center for the coming year – trails, swimming on the river, Butterfly House, natural play areas, discounts at events …
Membership is normally $25 per person, $35 for families but people can also trade volunteer time for membership.

We have a work day this Saturday, Feb 5 and probably one next Sat Feb 12 (depends if weather holds).  But if you would like to help out and those days don’t work for you call anyway because we can be flexible.   Call for info 541-596-2543.   Work starts at 10 am.

The nature center is here for the community, to offer safe outdoor recreation and learning for families and kids about our unique flora and fauna, and to bring in revenue from visitors to our area.

Warm regards, Patty
Call for info 541-596-2543
