  • Photography, videography, painting, or drawing must not interfere with the enjoyment of other visitors or create any safety concerns.
  • Lights, dollies, or other equipment is not permitted. Vehicles are not permitted beyond the designated preserve parking area/s.
  • All visitors and photographers/videographers must remain on the marked hiking trails. Tree climbing is prohibited.
  • Commercial or for-profit filming and photography are permitted by appointment at the discretion of Natural Lands Trust. Location fees and insurance are required, and certain restrictions may apply. For information about commercial photography and filming, call 610-353-5587 ext 267.
