Conservation is the active care of preserved lands, and protection ensures the land remains for generations to come. Controlled hunting is used to maintain healthy, balanced populations of plants and animals on Park District properties. Time has proven it a viable management tool and a proactive approach to our mission. With residents involved inthese goals, we're all taking stake in Geauga's natural resources together.

All hunters must complete Park District requirements, including qualifications and
applications for
permits, before hunting on Park District property.

The following applications are being accepted through July 31 for the 2015-16 lottery:
