Who We Are

Check Status of Trails and Preserves

Flooding and other weather-related events, construction projects, and controlled burns sometimes result in temporary detours or closures of trails, preserves, facilities, and seasonal activities in order to ensure public safety.

Emergency alerts, preserve and trail closures, construction projects, prescribed burn locations, and seasonal activity notices are posted on our interactive maps. Maps are updated during normal business hours, 8:30 am–5 pm, Monday–Friday, excluding holidays. Alerts and updates are sometimes also posted on Facebook and X.
