Two black percheron horses driven by cowboy on sickle mower cut hay
Mowing is the first step in the haying process, which is critical to feeding the livestock through the winter.  The percheron team above is pulling a sickle mower.  Once the hay has cured, it will be raked and stacked with the Beaverslide hay stacker.

Phased Reopening Continues

The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis. Visit the an NPS Public Health Update webpage for the most current NPS response.

Based on guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, access to the park, continues as follows:

Historic Buildings for self-guided tours
Park Trails
Visitor Center
Ranger Programs

Ranch House

While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased, and services may be limited. When recreating, please follow local area health orders, practice Leave No Trace principles, and avoid crowding and high-risk outdoor activities.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
