Russ Nature Reserve

About this Location

Russ Nature Reserve offers 90 acres of mixed prairie and woodlands with a 4,000-square-foot ranch home to be renovated as a nature education center. The ten-room home will offer classrooms, program areas, and a birding room.

The property was left to the park agency by the late Fritz and Dolores Russ as a legacy honoring their passion for nature and education.
