Visitors: Our campus is open for hiking, biking and paddling Monday through Saturday, 8:30am-4:30pm, with closures only on Sundays and federal holidays. All visitors should do a self-health check before arriving and bring a face covering if you wish to use the indoor restrooms. We also advise bringing a filled water bottle, as our Reed Education Center is temporarily out of potable water while we replace the water tanks.See our COVID-19 Visitor Guide for where to park, updated maps and hours, and other safety info.
