Beginning at 12:01 a.m. Monday, June 2, the regularly scheduled 60-day ORV closure for management units within the Preserve that allow for wheeled ORV access will be implemented. This closure will be lifted on Friday, August 1.
The Recreational Off-Road Vehicle Management Plan calls for a 60-day seasonal closure to allow a period free from resource pressures related to ORV use. The ORV closure within Big Cypress National Preserve was first instituted in 2002.
