For Immediate Release: August 14, 2020
Little Bluff Conservation Area will remain closed for the duration of the summer season. The decision to re-open the area will be evaluated on a week by week basis starting September 15th. Any use of the area is not permitted at this time.
Quinte Conservation staff have evaluated options for re-opening the area, however, due to COVID-19 requirements for services, it is not feasible at this time as the organization does not possess the required resources for crowd control and the cleaning and sanitation of facilities.
Individuals are asked to respect the closure and those caught violating this closure may be subject to a fine. Quinte Conservation staff will continue to monitor the area closely and encourage neighbours of Little Bluff to report their concerns and non-emergencies to 613-968-3434 or by email at
The decision to close the area was made on July 29th due to overcrowding, garbage dumping and non-permitted activities. Visitors to Quinte Conservation’s areas are reminded that these are natural spaces and individuals are asked to practice leave no trace principles while enjoying these places.
