BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Wind Wolves Preserve announced it will temporarily close beginning Friday amid coronavirus concerns.

The park said on its Facebook page that it made the decision in the interest of the safety of visitors, staff and the community.

This closure is in accordance with the closures of national and state parks, as well as many regional, and city parks in Kern County and surrounding communities, as cases of COVID-19 continue to increase.

The managers and rangers that live on the Preserve will continue to care for and keep secure this beautiful landscape we all know and love.

Wind Wolves Preserve had said it would try to remain open for people to walk the trails for exercise or leisure at safe distances, and closed several high traffic areas of there last week.

The closure of the preserve and the trails is expected to last until the state’s stay-at-home order is lifted.
