This is what the event owner said:

Fontenelle Forest will be closed to the public starting on Monday, March 16th, through March 31. All programs and events are canceled. This decision was made following yesterday’s press conference with local government and health agencies, where Governor Pete Ricketts announced that a first community-acquired case of COVID-19 had been established and recommendations were made to limit large public events, programs and gatherings. If you or your organization were registered for a program or event, we will contact you directly and provide a refund.

What's happening?

Have you ever wanted to learn how to interpret clues left behind by forest animals? This is your chance! Join us on the trails as we learn about animal tracks and scat. All participants will receive a free animal track guide to use during and after the program. Dress for the weather and bring water. We will be spending part of the program looking at tracks in the mud, so please bring gloves and wear clothes and shoes you don’t mind getting dirty.

This program is free for members or with daily admission. Participants must preregister.
