Things to take

Prescription medicines as needed, good walking shoes, hot weather clothes, insect repellent, umbrella or rain jacket, flashlight, binoculars, sun screen, film and camera extra batteries, plastic bags to keep film/paper dry. Most of these items are also found on our gift shop.


If you are hypersensitive to insects, bees or wasps, always carry a sting kit with you. Please walk only on marked trails, and remain watchful for snakes, bees, and wasps. If you encounter a snake, back away slowly and allow the snake to move away of its own accord. Notify a staff member immediately in the event of an emergency.
