TRAILS CLOSED FOR 4-DAY MANAGED DEER HUNT

December 8, 2019 - December 12, 2019

Since the 1980s, the deer population has exploded, due in part to the lack of larger predators and the abundance of food. To mitigate the issue, we embarked on what has been a decades-long process: conducting research, forming and enacting a plan, and constantly evaluating results. Since the official deer hunt program began in 1996, it has become arguably the most successful conservation program in the history of the forest.

The only exception will be the trails at Neale Woods, which will remain open. The Nature Center and Raptor Woodland Refuge will also be open. For everyone’s safety please make sure to respect the trail closures during this time.

TRAILS CLOSED DECEMBER 9-12 (MON-THURS)
