Terms & Conditions of Use for Mill Hollow Visitors and Residents
The Mill Hollow Center is operated on the basis of full cooperation between staff and visitors at the Center and the U.S. Forest Service in the support of Utah State Education and Forest Service policies and programs.
A joint STEM education/forest service program has been established at the Center to ensure continuation of the center's operation on a long term basis in a way that will enhance rather than cause deterioration of the environment. Many people should be able to come to the Center for many years to enjoy its wildlife, forests, meadows, and streams and other natural features in full and undiminished beauty.
We encourage all visitors to add improvements that will ensure a better Center in the future. These are ways visitors and residents can help:
- Protect plants and animals against injury and destruction. Chasing and/or throwing rocks at animals are not acceptable.
- Don't start fires. Fires must be in designated areas only and will be started by staff members. In case of fire, evacuate the area and notify staff immediately.
- Relax on the lawns but don't use them for walkways and trails. When this is done the vegetation soon wears out and is gone. Please stay on designated trails when hiking.
- Do not cut plants, especially trees, without express permission.
- Use the restroom to take care of your personal needs.
- Buildings and surrounding areas are cleaned daily. No littering makes the job easier and the Center more attractive.
- Children are not allowed near the loading dock and wall near the kitchen area.
- Camping or staying in the parking lot in recreational vehicles is not allowed. There are unimproved campsites near the Center where guests may camp, then return to the Center to join the activities. Vehicles must stay on designated roads.
- Be considerate and polite: everyone appreciates friendly, courteous treatment. There will typically be more than one group using the Center at the same time. Make arrangements with the Manager on duty for special use of facilities.
Lost and Found items will be held at the Mill Hollow Outdoor Education Center for 3 weeks. Please contact Mill Hollow to determine whether your lost item has been turned in. All reasonable efforts will be made to return items to their original owners.
