The boardwalk at Mason Farm Biological Reserve has been removed. We anticipate it will be replaced by July 1. A permit, available at the Allen Education Center, is required to visit the Reserve. Please note visiting the Reserve may require fording a stream with your vehicle. Depending on the stream depth, crossing may be dangerous and prevent visiting the site. The crossing will be closed when the gage height is above five feet. Click here to check the gage height.
