Beginning at 12:01 am Friday, April 7 2017, Zone-4 of the Stairstep Unit within Big Cypress National Preserve will be closed to airboat access due to low water conditions. On March 24, 2017, threshold levels for closure were observed and persisted for two-weeks. This closure is temporary and will be rescinded when surface water depths have returned to safe levels.
The closure is necessary for resource and visitor protection during a period of low water. For details about airboat use in Big Cypress visit www.nps.gov/bicy/planyourvisit/orv-use.htm
