Douglas County has athletic fields and group picnic shelters available for reservation throughout the year.   Fields reservations are by historical use and normally processed in February for the upcoming year. Requests for availability after February are processed in the order in which they are received.  Group Picnic Shelter reservations require a minimum of two-weeks advanced notice, and are processed in the order in which they are received.

A list of organizations that reserve Douglas County fields for organized adult and youth sports is available, please contact individual organizations for more information on sports they provide.

Educational programs, activities and events are important tools for land management and public awareness of Douglas County’s protected properties. Education through interpretive programs and guided hikes teach respect for natural resources and land stewardship, while allowing people to develop a sense of ownership and community service.
