• Why Seasonal Closures?

     

  • Seasonal wildlife closures are important to allow natural wildlife cycles and protect species during sensitive times. For example, areas may be closed for bird nesting or elk calving. Closing these areas to the public gives the species a better chance to have and tend to their offspring. See our 'Seasonal Closures' section on the Alerts and Closures page.
