You do not need a reservation to visit the preserve as we are open year-round. The main visitor tourist season is from April through October with the off-season November through March. The historic buildings are open everyday, except some major holidays. The hiking trails are open 24/7 year-round, closing only in times of prescribed fire. All access to the prairie is by hiking or walking. No private vehicles are allowed in the prairie. Camping and overnight parking are not authorized at this time on the preserve.
*****Daily Bus Tours have been cancelled through the remainder of 2020 due to the inability to properly social distance within an enclosed vehicle. Read the press release at the link above. A podcast has been posted of a bus tour and can be located here.
