In an abundance of caution regarding coronavirus, Big South Fork NRRA has postponed the annual Science Meeting scheduled for April 1, after taking into consideration nationally published information by the CDC, state and local health departments, and their recommendations to cancel public events.

“The top priority is the health and safety of park employees and visitors. We look forward to a resumption of normal park operations and recurring special events,” said Superintendent Niki Stephanie Nicholas.
