Special Events at
Schmeeckle Reserve is an increasingly popular place for runs, walks, biking events, kayak demos, memorial services, weddings, and other special events. To avoid conflicts with other visitors, all events must be approved by the Schmeeckle Reserve director.
If your group or organization would like to hold an event elsewhere in the Reserve, please fill out the Special Event Application form below. We will respond to your request within 3-5 business days.
Because preservation and education are the main priorities of Schmeeckle Reserve, be aware that some events may not be permitted if they conflict with these goals.
