Eagle River Preserve vehicle access closed for winter

Contact: Ron Siebert, Project Manager, 970-328-8881 or 

The Eagle River Preserve (ERP) is officially closed to vehicles for the winter season to allow wildlife to utilize the area as a winter habitat. Pedestrian access is still available from the Hwy. 6 and northeast gates. 

Officials are reminding ERP users not to disturb wildlife, such as deer and elk, they may encounter in the preserve. Dogs must be kept on a leash while on the property, with the exception of the off-leash area in the northeast corner of the property. However, pet owners are asked to keep dogs on a leash if wildlife is present in the area.

The ERP will reopen in the spring after the snow melts and a thorough walk-through has been performed to assure public safety.  For more information, contact Eagle County Project Manager Ron Seibert at 970-328-8881.
