Changes during the Pandemic

Our trails are open, and we invite you to visit one of our preserves! 

While visiting our preserves, please follow social distancing protocols by staying 6 feet away from other visitors.  If you meet someone on the trail, step far enough off the trail to allow them safe passage.  Do not touch benches, tables, or doors.

To protect the health of our community, in-person events have been moved to a digital platform or postponed up until June 1, 2020.  The IRLC staff will be primarily working remotely, but will be available by email at, as always.

We will keep you updated about our event schedule as the risk of group gatherings passes. To sign up for emails, visit this page.

Each weekday, we will also be posting nature activities on our Facebook Page.

In this unprecedented time, we remain committed to promoting thriving communities in a healthy and diverse natural environment.  Part of that commitment is doing what we can to preserve the health of the people who call this special place home.  Stay calm and balance the stress of these uncertain times by spending time outdoors.
