The first set of closures will run from Friday through Sunday and will include areas of Matthiessen State Park as well as Ottawa Canyon, Illinois Canyon and Kaskaskia Canyon at Starved Rock. Nature preserves such as the Starved Rock Nature Preserve, Marjory C. Carlson, Sandy Ford and Mitchell’s Grove preserves will also be closed.

Other dates of upcoming closures include Dec. 3-6, Dec. 11-13, Dec. 31-Jan. 3, 2021 and Jan. 15-17, 2021.
