Rasmussen Teaching Garden
The H. Paul and Mary Jane Rasmussen Teaching Garden, adjacent to the Utah State University Botanical Center Greenhouse, is open to the public and is used extensively by the more than 150 students working toward degrees in the Utah State University off-campus horticulture program. The garden is named in honor of Doctor and the late Mrs. Rasmussen’s long-time support of the USUBC and its mission to conduct research and demonstrate wise use of plant and water resources. The garden is planted in a series of “islands” that are beautiful from many angles and change with the seasons. The garden also showcases the USUBC’s collection of daylilies and iris that represent Dyke’s annual award winners since 1947. A water feature, by garden sculpture designer Allison Armour, was added in the summer of 2008. The beautiful piece is a gift from USUBC supporters Dan and Claudette Eastman.
