Our nature preserves are open to the public 365 days per year, providing natural places that offer peace and respite for all. We do love dogs, however... Because it is an important bird area (IBA) for nesting grassland birds who are very sensitive to the presence of dogs, they are not allowed at Kirkwood … Learn more about our nature preserves.
Discover Rushton Mini Camp
Spend a day at Rushton exploring the woods and fields, monitoring bird boxes, and making bouquets, forest art, and gnome homes. We’ll also work on the farm, harvesting the potatoes you helped plant in May. In addition, we will be discovering the power of Motus technology for tracking the movements and migrations of birds through a case study of a nano-tagged bird. Snacks will be provided, but campers should bring their own lunch.
This event is Birds and Wildlife (Bird Icon), Regenerative Farming (Carrot Icon), Healthy Habitat (Leaf Icon).
