Trail Closure

Due to the numerous recent reported bear sightings and encounters over the past couple of weeks, we have temporarily closed the trails at Wiessner Woods until further notice to minimize the potential for human-bear conflicts. 

Thank you for giving them space and for your assistance with stewarding this special place.
