As you plan your visits to Geauga Park District this fall and winter, please note the following park closures due to controlled hunting.
The Rookery will be closed from sunrise to a half hour after sunset November 19 and 20 due to youth gun hunting, as well as January 7, 8 and 9 due to muzzleloader hunting.
Observatory Park will be closed November 28 and 29 due to regular gun hunting.
And The West Woods will be closed December 2 and 3 due to regular gun hunting.
All these dates are also posted at www.geaugaparkdistrict.org under News & Updates, and rangers and/or signs will be posted at the park entrance these days as a reminder.
Controlled hunting has been used since the 2007-08 season to maintain healthy, balanced populations of plants and animals on Park District properties. Time has proven it a viable management tool and a proactive approach to the Park District’s mission. Learn more about the program at www.geaugaparkdistrict.org under Activities, then Hunting & Trapping.
