Update: April 1,  2024

Our preserves are gradually getting back to accessible condition after the recent and dramatic ice storm. MHLC staff and volunteers are working hard to clear up fallen trees and debris throughout our service area.
Normans Kill West Preserve is now open.
Please let us know if you encounter major trail blockages by emailing with photos and location details.

All preserve visitors should be prepared muddier than average trail conditions this spring!
