Big Cypress National Preserve has been actively monitoring and preparing for potential impacts due to Tropical Storm Isaac. Due to the impending storm, the preserve will implement temporary closures. Beginning at 12:00 noon on Saturday, August 25 all licensed commercial services and visitor services in the preserve, and recreational access to the backcountry will be suspended until the passage of the storm.

These closures are conducted in the interest of public safety, and to ensure preserve staff concentrates completely on securing and protecting preserve resources and facilities.

The preserve is expected to reopen and resume routine operations once the storm has passed and conditions are safe.
