These are the Code of Ethics and some of rules we ask everybody to follow when visiting the Cosumnes River Preserve.
KEEP ON THE TRAILS
The trails are provided for your enjoyment as well as for your safety.
We invite you to explore until your heart’s content as long as it is from one of the approved access trails.
We love dogs and cats but they tend to chase or scare the wildlife that we are here to protect.
Please leave your pets at home.
Pets are prohibited from entering the Reserve, except when they remain inside of a motor vehicle.
CCR TITLE 14 630(h)(16)
PACK OUT YOUR TRASH
There is no better way to ruin the day than to throw your trash in other people’s way.
Help others enjoy the Preserve by leaving no trace.
DO NO HARM TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Remember that you are a temporary visitor on planet Earth. Please do your part to leave
the planet in a better condition than when you found it.
WALK NOT RIDE
The trails on the Preserve are intended for walking only; please lock up your bike at the Visitor Center.
HELP KEEP THE BIRDS HAPPY
When you scare birds and make them fly they expend energy that they could otherwise use for migration and breeding.
The more you scare them the fewer there will be next year when you come visit.
