Interested in hosting a wedding, gathering, commercial photoshoot, or another special event?

Please email [email protected] and include a brief description of your event. Be sure to read the Special Event Agreement. Please keep in mind that there is limited infrastructure at Public Conservation Areas, and reservations are first-come, first served, so it’s best to plan ahead.

Tips for planning your event

  • Gazebos are available at Greenport, Ooms, and Overmountain Conservation Areas.
  • Schor Conservation Area includes a picnic pavilion with electricity.
  • There are no restrooms or trash cans at the sites. Please practice Leave No Trace ethics by taking all your trash with you when you leave. 
  • Public Conservation Areas will remain open to the public from dawn to dusk every day and during event/group outings/commercial use.
  • Please have all attendees and belongings off-premises by dusk unless the Columbia Land Conservancy has agreed to a later end time.
