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.

By involving residents in these goals, we're all taking stake in Geauga County's natural resources together.

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

APPLICATIONS ARE NO LONGER BEING ACCEPTED FOR
GEAUGA PARK DISTRICT'S 2014-15 CONTROLLED HUNTING PROGRAM.

 

NEW! Controlled Trapping Lottery
