With winter weather now upon the Midwest, preserve visitors are reminded that not all preserves may be open on time during or immediately after a snow event.
For the public’s safety, some preserves may remain closed as District staff work to plow the roadways to make travel less hazardous. Every effort will be made to open each preserve in a timely fashion, and the priority will be given to the District’s visitor centers and dog parks.
However, the public is asked for its patience as our staff work to clear the snow and ice.
Preserves may also close early when weather conditions warrant it.
