The parking lots at Hillman Marsh, Maidstone Woods and Ruscom Shores Conservation Area will be temporarily closed as the snow melts and ground thaws, making the gravel parking lots difficult to navigate.

“In order to maintain the integrity of these parking lots over the long term and ensure they are safe for our visitors, it is necessary that we temporarily close the parking lots during this period of thaw and extremely wet weather,” explains Kevin Money, Director of Conservation Services for the Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA). “As soon as the mud and gravel hardens to ensure it is safe for vehicles, we will open the parking lots back up.”
