Parks and Preserves

Tread lightly. Leave no trace. And enjoy all nature has to offer.

Lands for all to enjoy

It is essential to understand the uses and restrictions of various kinds of public lands. Parks, trails, and walks are common types, while preserves are recognized for their ecological, natural, or cultural values and protected by laws. Land trusts are often privately owned but managed by organizations dedicated to preserving land for current and future generations.

Be aware if you will be on public or private land. Whether hiking or biking, angling, or ATVing, always stay on a designated trail. Plan around peak hours of the day to avoid crowds on the trails.
