Macbride Nature Recreation Area Closes; Wildlife Camps Continue

Macbride Nature Recreation Area has closed due to water on the entrance road. This closure includes the Macbride Raptor Project and the boat access off Lake Macbride. The area is expected to remain closed until the Coralville Lake Reservoir drops back below the emergency spillway.

The summer youth Wildlife Camps that were scheduled to take place at MNRA will be relocated until further notice. Beginning Thursday, June 12, all drop-offs and pick-ups will now be conducted at the Hawkeye Recreation Fields located on Hawkeye Park Drive in Iowa City. The archery drop-off site will no longer be available. Please contact the camp staff for more information.
