To protect the Natural Area and enhance the experience of others, all visitors are asked to observe the following guidelines when visiting the QBNA.

  • Foot traffic on marked trails is welcome, but bicycles, horses, trail bikes, snowmobiles and other motorized vehicles are prohibited. Foot traffic off marked trails is strongly discouraged.
  • Please do not walk on the beaver dams. It is not safe to do so and the dams are an important natural feature of the QBNA.
  • Please do not disturb or collect plants, animals, rocks, or other natural features.
  • Canoeing and kayaking are not permitted for individuals or groups engaged in recreation or outdoor education. There are no appropriate access points to the pond and the protection of sensitive habitats is a high priority at the QBNA.
  • Hunting, fishing, trapping, camping, lighting fires, and littering are prohibited.
  • Dogs must be under control at all times. Please remove dog waste from trails.
  • Children must be adequately supervised by adults to ensure that they observe visitor guidelines.
