Natural Area Status & Details
Eagle View
Not yet open to public.
Flores del Sol
Not yet open to the public.
Soapstone Prairie
Soapstone Prairie will be closed on one weekday between now and November 1 for aerial herbicide application. The treatment prevents the germination of non-native cheatgrass and does not affect native plants.
The control of cheatgrass is a high priority because of the threat it poses to plant and wildlife communities and increases the risk of wildfire.
Soaring Vista
Not yet open to the public.
Topminnow
Not yet open to the public.
All other trails are open! Enjoy your natural areas!
