Little Bluff to remain closed for summer

Little Bluff Conservation Area will remain closed for the duration of the summer season. Any use of the area is not permitted. The decision to re-open the area will be evaluated on a week-by-week basis starting Sept. 15th.

“Quinte Conservation staff have evaluated options for re-opening the area, however, due to COVID-19 requirements for services, it is not feasible at this time as the organization does not possess the required resources for crowd control and the cleaning and sanitation of facilities,” said Kirsten Geisler, communications.

Individuals are asked to respect the closure and those caught violating this closure may be subject to a fine. Quinte Conservation staff will continue to monitor the area closely and encourage neighbours of Little Bluff to report their concerns and non-emergencies to 613-968-3434 or by email at info@quinteconservation.ca.

The decision to close the area was made July 29th due to overcrowding, garbage dumping and non-permitted activities.

Visitors to Quinte Conservation’s areas are reminded that these are natural spaces and individuals are asked to practice leave no trace principles.

    I’m very happy to read that the Quinte Conservation staff are monitoring this area, and I hope that anyone violating the closure *will* be fined. Thank you for taking the conservation status of this area seriously. It should be protected and preserved both now and in the future.
