Introducing Ivey's Butterfly Garden


Ivey Ranch is proud to introduce our very own Monarch Butterfly Garden! Previously known as the "Principal's Garden", the Monarch Butterfly Garden actually serves as a way-station or a conservation habitat for these butterflies.

The monarch butterfly population is rapidly decreasing due to the loss of their precious habitat, the milkweed plant. Ivey Ranch has teamed up in a partnership with Monarch Watch to aid in the preservation of these beautiful creatures. Be sure to check out our garden where you're sure to see the monarch butterfly in all four stages of life as well as an array of plants and flowers including the milk weed plant.
