Hundreds of Acres Still Available to Explore During Wildlife Management at Bernheim

Arboretum Fall13 - 04All visitors are reminded that from November 12-20, 2016 selected Bernheim trails will be closed for wildlife management, including all trails on Forest Hill Drive and the Millennium Trail.  There are still hundreds of acres for people to hike, bike and have fun outside during this eight day period.   We’d especially recommend enjoying our prized Holly collection, one of the largest in North America.

All closed areas will be clearly marked for your safety. We take this time to ensure proper ecological balance at Bernheim.   The weekend environmental fee during this time is waived.

  1. thank you for finally doing something about the overpopulation problem of the deer in the park, better late than never those antlered rodents have chewed just about every piece of understory vegetation to the ground.
