Operating Hours & Seasons
The Reserve does not close or have operating hours, and is a great place to visit year-round. However, facilities in the Reserve which offer visitors recreation and education opportunities all have varying hours for operations depending upon the season and some charge a fee.
Did You Know?
The prairies, with their rich soil, were the first areas of the Reserve to be farmed, first by Native Americans, and later, by European-american settlers who moved onto the lands. The pioneers cleared the higher ground and tried to farm it, but found the soils poor and allowed the forests to return.
