Protecting the Preserve
Hawkins Preserve is a valuable site of cultural resources, natural features and plant & animal communities within the Cortez city limits. Please help protect the Preserve by observing the following rules:
- Dogs must be on leashes at all times. Please use the waste baggies provided at the trailheads along Mesa View Trail.
- Please stay on trails or rock surfaces and obey signs.
- Leave no trace – carry out your trash.
- Look, touch and enjoy – but please leave artifacts, plants, etc… where you find them.
- No campfires allowed.
- Access below the rim, including rock climbing, is by permit only. Please complete the permit application and forward to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Permits are also required for groups, including school classrooms, visiting for educational or scientific purposes. Please contact the Cortez Cultural Center at email@example.com or 970-565-1151.
- Please consider giving back as a volunteer or making a donation to The Cortez Cultural Center.
