Due to special resource management concerns, Fivemile Wash is closed to hiking and canyoneering from the head of the wash to two miles downstream in the drainage. This closure will remain in effect until August 31, 2015. This closure is in accordance with 36 CFR 1.5 (a)(1).
The National Park Service (NPS) works to sustain and recover over a thousand populations of federally listed threatened and endangered (T&E) species. Over half of the 407 NPS units contain one or more T&E species. Our mission is to reduce the risk of extinction of plants and animals in the parks, and to restore species that have occurred in parks historically but have been lost due to human activities. The NPS seeks to be proactive in determining the status of rare species and cooperating with other agencies to conserve declining species to avoid listing under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
