A clump of Rubber Rabbitbrush overlooks a network of gullies near the Delicate Arch entrance road. Native Americans reportedly used rabbitbrush as a yellow dye, to make a medicinal tea, and for chewing gum. Rabbitbrush can be an important browse food for mule deer, pronghorn, and jackrabbits during fall and winter. It also provides cover for mammals and small nesting birds.
