Trail Rules

Woldumar Nature Center seeks to protect a vital natural environment, not only for all the wildlife and plant species that live here, but for generations of families seeking a connection with the natural world. Please help us in our preservation efforts by following these simple rules:

  1. Stay on the trails and enjoy everything in its natural setting. Do not take anything home with you. Leave all items such as flowers, leaves, or rocks in place for others to enjoy! Feel free to snap a photo if you want to remember it well enough to identify it after you get home.
  2. Carry any trash out with you after walking on the trails. Trash receptacles are available for your convenience near the Visitor Center.
  3. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the Woldumar campus, including the parking lot. This includes all forms of tobacco use and e-cigarettes.
  4. Do not take food and cans/bottles of beverage on the trails. Designated picnic areas are provided near the Visitor’s Center. Alcohol consumption is not allowed anywhere on the Woldumar campus except during special events.
  5. Cross-country skiing or snowshoeing is allowed on the trails when the snow cover is adequate.
  6. Bicycles, skateboards and rollerblades are not allowed on the trails. Bicycles may be secured near the Visitor’s Center.
  7. Motorized vehicles are not allowed on the trails.
  8. Dogs must always be on a leash that does not exceed 6 ft. Please pick up your dog waste.
