lobelia 2018

What amazing treasures have you found at RBD this year? Lately, we’ve seen 3 Lobelia species (L to R above: great blue lobelia, bog lobelia, cardinal flower), a beautiful tiger moth (Apantesis arge), and of course the grasses are flowering and turning shades of red, orange and yellow.

Come out to Rainbow Beach Dunes from 10am-12pm this Saturday September 8, 2018 to help pull weeds, pick up trash, and take a nature walk.

Please RSVP for the workday here. Questions? Contact co-stewards Alison Anastasio ( or Jen Raber (
Remember to prepare for the weather and terrain: sun protection, sturdy shoes, long pants, bug repellent, and water are recommended. Tools, equipment, and snacks will be provided.

Rainbow Beach Park runs parallel to South Shore Drive from 75th-79th Streets.

  • By foot, walk east from South Shore Dr. on 77th St.
  • By car, you can only access the park at the southern end, from Hwy 41 at Farragut.
  • From the north/west, follow Hwy 41 east as it splits from South Shore Drive at 79th St. Turn left into the park at Farragut.
  • From the south, follow Hwy 41 north and turn right on Farragut, just before the intersection of 79th/South Shore.
  • Once in the park, go past the stop sign and water filtration plant and turn right at the next opportunity, into the parking lot before the Fieldhouse.
  • Go to the far right corner of the parking lot farthest from the field house at the entrance to the Nature Area. Meet at the banner!
  • Find directions and a map here.
