Preserve’s Trails Open!
Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve is pleased to announce that members and non-members are once again able to walk our trails inside the deer fencing.
A limited number of reservations will be available online for the following times and days:
Please note, for safety reasons you must leave by the end of your time slot. We need to limit the number of visitors at the Preserve at any given time in order to maintain social distancing. Also, the Preserve closes at 4 pm daily, at which time the gates will lock.
Members: Free (you will receive an entry code)
Seniors 65 and older and full-time students with ID: $6
Children (5-14): $4
Children under 5: Free
All reservations must be made online and, for non-members, must also be paid online. No cash will be accepted. If you would like to purchase Preserve admission after the desired ticketing time has begun, please inquire about availability at the entrance gate.
Those with reservations to visit the Preserve should arrive at the main entrance gate during their reserved access time to check-in. Please keep in mind that all visitors will be expected to follow COVID-19 health and safety precautions—including maintaining proper social distancing from others and wearing face masks when near other visitors during your visit. Also, don’t forget to bring water, sunscreen and insect repellent.
The Visitor Center restrooms will be open. However, the rest of the Visitor Center—including the Twinleaf Book & Gift Shop—will remain closed.
Native Plant Sales:
Our plant sale area is now open for in-person sales. Hours are Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10 am-3:30 pm; last admittance at 3 pm and Sunday 12:30 – 3:00 pm.
No reservations are required to shop in-person. Simply drive up to the main gate and tell the gatekeeper you have come to shop at the nursery.
For the safety of all concerned, while at the nursery everyone must wear a mask and practice social distancing. In addition, if for health reasons you would feel more comfortable with our curbside pickup option, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate your native plant pickup.
Finally, during these challenging times, this reopening process will be a learning experience for all of us. Please be patient and respectful of everyone—staff, volunteers, and other visitors—as we figure out together how to best enjoy the Preserve again.
