Controlled hunting and trapping 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 in these goals,
we're all taking stake in Geauga's natural resources together.
All hunters and trappers must complete Park District requirements, including qualifications and
applications for
permits, before hunting or trapping on Park District property.
