Brand New! Outdoor Hour Challenge-Rabbitbrush Nature Study

Forest Fun – Rabbitbrush Nature Study

Brand New! Outdoor Hour Challenge

Our habitat here in Central Oregon is filled with lots of rabbitbrush. Use a field guide or the link below to determine if you have access to rabbitbrush in your neighborhood.

  • There is a range map found here: USDA rabbitbrush.  Look for rabbitbrush in grasslands, open woodlands, dry open areas with sagebrush, among junipers, and at the edges of ponderosa pine forests. Bloom time is from July to October.

Note: If you don’t have rabbitbrush, you can substitute a study of goldenrod this week.
