*** NOTE !!! Due to the environmental
impact and the potential for injury and damage,
GUESTS ARE PROHIBITED FROM BRINGING ANY SOFT-AIR
PELLET TYPE GUNS, BB GUNS OR PELLET RIFLES ONTO HP40 PROPERTY.
We feel that there is no place for these items in
a nature park where all living things are strongly protected. The potential for injury or damage Is simply too great, including
the fact that the lead and plastic pellets are potentially harmful to wildlife and are NOT BIODEGRADABLE, effecting the
environment for many years. Please use these items elsewhere in a safe place and in a safe manner, and be enviornmentally
responsible and use a target that recovers your pellets.
Horse Pens 40 is a
"LEAVE NO TRACE"
There are a large number
of rare, threatened, protected, and endangered species here in the park.
No one can possibly know
all of these various species, many of which are protected by state and federal law;
Thus, all living things, all natural features, and all stone
features and rocks are protected here as if they are an endangered species.
Please do no harm to anything
while you are here.
Owners and Staff of Horse Pens 40 are not responsible for injury, accidents or
