Please Don't Touch the Wildlife
We appreciate your help in respecting all of the wonderful wildlife at Hesperia Lake Park. It's especially important during spring/early summer when there are a lot of little ones about the park that can suffer from being chased, touched, picked up, or other traumas.
~Please do your part to monitor children in your care as well, and teach them to observe and respect the wildlife from a distance.
In the pics: These little ducklings were abandoned by their parents after being handled by humans. This is a common practice we are trying to help avoid on our watch.
OHV's of any kind are not permitted on the property
