While flooding has abated, numerous trails were damaged by the high water.  Some are being repaired, and others are being closed indefinitely.  We expect the Nature Center to re-open late Fall 2016.  Updates will be posted on this site, on our Facebook page, and sent to the “Friends of the Park” email list.

A Special Request for support

Miller Springs Alliance is working hard to improve and maintain the trails and natural habitat in the Nature Center. This includes

  • grooming of trails,
  • removal of fallen trees,
  • removal of more than a thousand invasive trees and plants, in the past year alone, and
  • construction of animal habitats.
  • construction of restroom facilities near the parking lot

 

All of this work is done by volunteers.  We need your donations, and your help! Please sign up for “Friends of the Park News” (in the adjacent right column) to be notified of upcoming volunteer events. You will also receive (easy opt in/opt out) periodic photos of recent happenings in the park.  All of the tools and  materials critical to improving and maintaining the park are purchased using donations from park visitors like you. Thank you for your support!
