**The health & safety of our community is our top concern, so please read our updated trail day policies and always be mindful when visiting communal spaces**
While our community programs are on hold for now, access to fresh air and open space is still extremely valuable to our well-being! In response to this need and changing times, we are starting to offer more frequent Open Trail Days on Wednesdays and Sundays, weather permitting, from 1-8pm.
However, there are some changes to our policies:
• Restroom facilities will be closed
• Blue Sage Gallery is closed, but a Prairiewood staff person will be on site to answer questions.
• Maps and other info will be available at a kiosk in front of the Blue Sage Gallery along with hand sanitizer -- PLEASE TAKE WHAT YOU TOUCH AND DO NOT RETURN USED MAPS.
• No campfires during this time.
• Please practice social distancing between yourself and others while on trails.
• As usual, please leave pets at home when visiting us!

Despite these difficult times, the prairie is starting to come alive again, and we hope you will take time to witness this with us in a safe and responsible way.
We will post updates in this event page for inclement weather or other changes, so please check back before you visit!
