Watch Your Step – It’s Snake Season

Spring is here, and that means longer hours, warmer temperatures and more people – and wildlife – out in the parks.

  • Parks open later: Spring-summer hours, during Daylight Saving Time, mean parks close at 9 p.m. or sunset.
  • Wildlife sightings: Park rangers have reported increased sightings of snakes, including rattlesnakes. Be sure to keep yourself – and your dog, where permitted – on the trail and aware of your surroundings to avoid an encounter.
  • Wildflowers: As of early April, only sparse blooms are reported. Take all the photos you want from the trail, but never pick wildflowers – leave them for others to enjoy and to spread their seeds for next season.
  • Warmer temperatures: While it’s always important to be prepared, warmer weather makes essentials like water and sunscreen even more important.
