El Yunque National Forest, including recreation sites, administrative facilities and El Portalito HUB in Palmer, will be closed to the public from Tuesday, August 27th through Thursday, August 29th due to the approach of tropical Storm Dorian.

After the passing of the storm, the Forest Service will conduct an analysis of conditions and announce when it is safe to reopen the Forest to the public.

The public is advised to monitor when the Forest will re-open on Twitter or Facebook @ElYunqueNF and the Forest webpage: www.fs.usda.gov/elyunque.
