Many people have enjoyed the trails of the Hartley Nature Park and some of the classes and summer programs in the Center. It's time to honor the park and what it means for Duluth.

The City of Duluth is inviting the public to an open house to learn about the nomination of Hartley Park to the Duluth Natural Areas Program. The Duluth Natural Areas Program was created and adopted by ordinance in 2002 to protect and preserve Duluth’s natural heritage for the public good. It was established because the City and other governmental entities own a large number of tracts of real estate, some of which are of environmental significance to the community.

This local program is designed to help us better protect and manage these remaining relatively undisturbed natural areas to ensure the services and values they provide (e.g., habitat diversity, water quality, flood retention, and a sense of place for us all) are preserved now and into the future from sale and development.

The open house will take place on:
