Wint Nature Center

​​Due to mandates from Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter, Oakland County Parks and Recreation is making operational changes that are in the best interest of the health and safety of the public and our employees. Wint Nature Center is closed until further notice, but the trails at Independence Oaks County Park remain open. Thank you for your patience as we implement changes to protect our visitors and staff. 

Mask Up Michigan

Per Executive Order 2020-147, a face covering must be worn over your nose and mouth*:

When in any indoor public space;

When outdoors and unable to consistently maintain a distance of six feet or more from individuals who are not members of their household; and

When waiting for or riding on public transportation, while in a taxi or ridesharing vehicle, or when using a private car service as a means of hired transportation.

This order requires businesses to refuse entry or service to people who refuse to wear a face covering.

A willful violation of the order is a misdemeanor subject to a $500 criminal penalty.

*The requirement to wear a face covering does not apply to individuals listed in Section 2 of Executive Order 2020-147.

Thank you for your compliance. Together we can help stop the spread of COVID-19.
