Hours

COVID-19 UPDATE, PLEASE READ ALL BEFORE VISITING: Access is limited to the new parking lot across from the Blue-Hole, no through traffic will be permitted beyond that parking lot. Once that lot is full, no additional parking will be permitted. Our hours will remain as they were prior to the pandemic.

Visitors have the opportunity to hike, bike, and fish, but no swimming or wading will be permitted. Our restrooms will remain closed.

Additionally, all visitors will be expected to follow strict social distancing guidelines: no groups larger than 10 and 6 foot distancing.

All of our rules and regulations will be strictly enforced, anyone found not complying with these guidelines and our regulations will be immediately removed from the Preserve, banned, and could face legal action.

If crowds become too large or if visitor compliance becomes an issue, we may be forced to close without warning. We are going to depend on you to help us to keep this going. Please respect our rules and leave before closing, we want to provide this outlet for you, but it is up to you to ensure it works.

We really appreciate everyone’s continued support and patience during this difficult time. We know how hard it has been, as we are also in it with you. It is very exciting to make this first step towards normalcy, but please keep in mind that we are a very small nonprofit and this has hit us particularly hard. Most of our annual funding is raised during programs and events during the spring, without those funds, the next year is going to be very challenging. We are going to depend on your support to ensure we are able to continue providing access to the Preserve we all love so much.

If and when these restrictions are changed, we will provide an update here and on our Facebook page.
