Want to Visit?
All Avalonia preserves are open to the public from dawn to dusk. Many have trails, and maps are available online and usually posted on the preserve. To spare trees and avoid litter, we do not provide paper maps, but any mobile device will allow you to access a map from the website. Some preserves may have restrictions to protect fragile habitats or nesting species. These will be posted. Parking may be limited or on the roadside only, so please take care.
We ask that you enjoy passive recreation of all kinds, stay on trails as much as possible, and keep dogs on a leash to protect wildlife and habitats. Please review our VISITATION GUIDELINES here.
