Wildlife / Greenbelt

Rushbrooke is privileged to own an expansive greenbelt that runs between the south and north editions of the neighborhood.  This greenbelt, which is slowly being developed to include natural walking trails, is home to a host of birds that include barred owls, hawks, cranes, bluebirds, woodpeckers, cedar waxwings, robins, and more. It's also home to other wildlife including possums, beavers, squirrels, coyotes and deer. We've even experienced an occasional bobcat or two.
 
We invite you to get involved with various HOA Committees and other initiatives to beautify the Greenbelt. In Fall 2022, we did so by planting 35 trees in what we've called the "Rushbrooke Arbor Garden," located between West Delmar Street and West Edgewater Street. 
 
While we value and appreciate this vast natural area, it's also important to keep an eye out -- especially during mating season -- for coyotes and other larger wildlife, and know what to do in the event you encounter them along the way.
