Coronavirus Preparedness and Response, Update

The Eno River Association is tuned in to the updates about COVID-19 in our community. We are taking precautions to keep our staff and program guests safe, and we hope that our members near and far will remain in good health.

We’re following the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as DurhamOrange, and Wake Counties, on responding to the outbreak. Our office is now closed to non-staff and our team is working remotely as much as possible. Please still be in touch with us.

Here are the latest updates on our response:

We are EXTENDING OPEN HOURS for our Confluence Natural Area to provide the public more outdoor opportunities that maximize social distance. The Confluence will now be open 7 days per week from dusk to dawn.

We are currently proceeding with plans for this year’s Festival for the Eno and for our Summer Camp Programs but are closely monitoring this evolving situation.

We have CANCELLED our Spring Wildflower Hikes through the rest of the season. Please stay tuned to our website and social media feeds for self-guided programming for adults and children.

We have CANCELLED our Volunteer Workdays indefinitely. In the meantime, you can still make an impact on our environment as you explore the Eno trails on your own. Consider bringing a plastic bag and gloves with you if you go hiking or for a walk to pick up trash you find along the way. Right now is a great time to explore how doing the little things can make an impact on our health and well-being. 

We have already seen increased traffic at our parks and trails. This means our work — and your support — is more important than ever. Please consider making a gift to becoming a member of the Association. Together, we can do more to protect our natural resources and keep them open for everyone.

As of March 27, Eno River State Park and Occoneechee Mountain Natural Area are now closed.

Little River Regional Park is open, but playground and restrooms are closed.

West Point on the Eno City Park and its trails remain open, but programs have been canceled and all buildings are closed to the public.
