Preserves in this category are not set up for easy public access. Resource Protection Preserves are typically small, have no road access, or have sensitive plant communities that make public access unfeasible or are adjacent to conservation lands which already offer hiking trails and facilities.
- No facilities
- No designated access points, or trails are available
- If there is a public interest, staff may provide guided field trips when there are no safety concerns and it is compatible with protecting the animal and plant communities found at the specific preserve
