Hi Brian, to be honest I'm not sure what the official policy is, I've been birding there for years without any problem. The one person I can think of that might know for sure is Bea Cooley, she has done a lot of work over the years involved with the preservation of Picture Canyon, you might try contacting her from the member list. Sorry I could not be of more help.

Ken
