Cascadia’s biggest and most popular national park, Cascades National Park, is being reopened for summer after it was closed for a three-year closure due to a new coronavirus outbreak.
The Cascadians are hoping for a return to normal after the coronavillae outbreak which claimed the lives of four people.
According to the Cascadian Department of Forestry and Wildlife (CDFW), the park is currently operating with a one-day closure, as is its traditional practice.
However, the new closure will only last for a short period of time.
The CDFW said the closure will not affect activities at the park, including the annual Sheep Festival and the annual Cascading Sheep Trail.
The festival, which began on October 26, will now go ahead with a full schedule of activities, the CDFW added.
“The festival will be held on Sunday, November 1 and the Sheep Festival will be organised on Saturday, November 9,” the CDFW added.
In total, there are four major events scheduled for the two weeks from November 1 to November 8.
The Sheep Festival is expected to be held from Saturday, December 1, to Sunday, December 7.
The first event, Sheep Festival of the Sheep, is set to be a chance for Cascads sheep farmers to show off their skills, with the festival organised by the Cane Creek Sheepers.
Cane Creek is located in the Canna Islands National Park.
The annual Sheep Parade, held on the first Saturday of each month, will also take place.
The event has been held annually since 2008 and is attended by over 400 farmers, from all over the world, as well as other visitors.
According the CDFS, the event has become an important source of income for the CNRW.
The CDFW also said it has been able to re-establish some fencing and trees, and has also worked to restore the trails that were damaged in the recent coronavaccine outbreak.
“In addition, our team has been working closely with the CDNF and our colleagues in other regions, and are planning to expand our network in the next few weeks,” the CFFW added, as cited by Football Italica.
