Morgan Creek Park, Wanatee Park, and Wickiup Hill Learning Center outdoor areas have mostly reopened following the august derecho. However, some select trails and park sections may be closed for safety reasons and/or for ongoing debris removal. In particular, many trails at Wanatee Park are open only for foot traffic (closed for horses where normally allowed). Please observe signage and gate closures where applicable. Several natural areas and trails may also have areas of debris, but are available for public use.
Linn County Conservation is continuing efforts to remove the devastation from areas impacted from this storm, while taking steps to replenish the woodlands.
