Land Trust Closes Preserves

Friends of the Columbia Gorge Land Trust has closed its Mosier Plateau and Lyle Cherry Orchards preserves.  Trust Director Dan Bell said in a statement that people at crowded trailheads, parking areas, and overlooks have little opportunity to follow proper social distance guidance.  He said keeping the trails open at this time could present a very real risk to neighbors.  Bell added they will follow the guidance of health officials and work with community partners to determine when it is time to re-open trails on the Trust’s public preserves.
