  • Follow the CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to visiting parks or trails 

  • Share the trail: warn other trail users of your presence as you pass and step aside to let others pass

  • Observe the CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of 6 feet from other persons at all times

The Natural Lands Program was established in 1990 by a voter approved referendum.  The money was used to purchase lands for the purposes of preservation, recreation and education. The Natural Lands now consist of over 6,600 acres of preserved land. The largest parcels are called wilderness areas.

Preservation
There are eight wilderness areas and one preserve that are open to the public. Integral to the goals and objectives for managing acquired lands in an acceptable manner are protection and restoration of the natural resources present. An important element in protecting the resources is to prevent dumping, poaching, and other illegal activities. Appropriate land management activities, such as prescribed burning, forest management, resource monitoring, and removal of exotics, are implemented to protect the viability of the Natural Lands Properties.
 

The Natural Lands Progam offers a variety of programs and activities for all ages including field trips for schools, eco-camp, eco-adventure programs, and hikes.
