Spring Break 2021

You are welcome to walk the trails for exercise, fresh air & sunlight. With increasing visits, we ask three things of our guests:

  • Please KEEP YOUR DOG AT HOME so that our sensitive wildlife will feel protected in their home and stay visible for you to enjoy.
  • Please DO NOT WALK in the MULCHED GARDEN BEDS so that our young & fragile native plants have a chance to grow into a beautiful garden for you to enjoy.
  • Please give others 6 feet of distance.

The Bunker Interpretive Center is closed until further notice.
