CLOSURE – Superintendent Update

The health and safety of our community, visitors, and staff are of the utmost importance during this difficult time.

To further prevent the spread of COVID-19, and in accordance with the Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamation issued on March 9, 2020, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) today announced the closure of all state parks, fish and wildlife areas, recreational areas, and historic sites as well as the cancellation of upcoming scheduled events.
This includes the Grounds and the Interpretive Center.
We ask for your cooperation in reducing the contagion by not visiting Cahokia Mounds and adhering to social distancing policy.
This closure is indefinite and as more information is available, it will be passed via press release and on our social media outlets and website.

Lori Belknap,
Site Superintendent
