  • Campfires and use/discharge of fireworks are prohibited.

  • While every effort has and is being made to clear dangerous materials, 60 years of military occupation make it possible that live rounds and explosives remain in public areas as well as posted areas.  If you encounter unfamiliar objects, especially metal, DO NOT TOUCH.  Instead, MAKE A NOTE OF THE LOCATION and CALL THE FEDERAL POLICE at (831) 242-7851.  For Questions regarding explosives clean up contact the Directorate of Environmental and Natural Resources Management, Presidio of Monterey - (831) 242-7924.
  • Be aware mountain lions are present.  It is important to keep children and small animals within sight.  If you come in contact with a mountain lion, do not run.  Try to appear as large and loud as possible -- raise your hands.  Pick up small children and avoid bending over or crouching.  Fight back if attacked.  Report any mountain lion sightings to the California Department of Fish and Game 24-hours a day at (916) 445-0045 or (831) 848-2576.
