Due to the number of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the country and locally, Linn County has closed most buildings to the public to help reduce community spread of the virus and to help ensure continuity of County services.
The Linn County Conservation Board manages 28 areas of over 7,400+ acres in the form of parks, preserves, natural areas, and linear parks (trails). 94% of Linn County's properties are natural or undeveloped.
Linn County Conservation continues to provide an abundance of recreational opportunities that include camping, hiking, geocaching, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, fishing and hunting. These areas include over 100 miles of trail, over 300 campsites, an observatory, an award-winning nature center, an arboretum, a watercraft rental facility, a modern shooting range and high-quality educational programming.
