Division of Nature Preserves and Natural Resources

 For the health and safety of our staff and visitors, Mecklenburg County is limiting access to many county facilities due to the current COVID-19 health concern.  All Recreation, Nature, Aquatic Centers as well as playgrounds and other mass gathering spots are closed until further notice. At this time we are cancelling upcoming programs, events, and parties.  We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you again once this health concern has passed.


The Division of Nature Preserves and Natural Resources is responsible for the protection and conservation of Mecklenburg County's parks designated as Nature Preserves. 


Nature Preserves protect the county's biological resources and natural areas, while providing opportunities for environmental education, nature-based programs, and outdoor recreation.

Our staff offer more than 5,000 programs annually, perform natural resource management on over 7,6​00 acres, maintain more than 30 miles of nature trails, and operate 3 nature centers and a public campground.​
