§ 630. Additional Visitor Use Regulations on Department Lands Designated as Ecological Reserves.
(a) The areas listed in this section have been designated by the commission as ecological reserves. A legal description of the boundaries of each ecological reserve is on file at the department's headquarters. All ecological reserves are maintained for the primary purpose of developing a statewide program for protection of rare, threatened, or endangered native plants, wildlife, aquatic organisms, and specialized terrestrial or aquatic habitat types. Visitor uses are dependent upon the provisions of applicable laws and upon a determination by the commission that opening an area to such visitor use is compatible with the purposes of the property. Visitor use is subject to the regulations below, in sections 550 and 550.5 of these regulations, as well as any other commission regulations that may apply. These regulations are incorporated by reference into and become a condition of entry, passes, and/or permits. It is the responsibility of all visitors to know and understand these regulations prior to entry. Ecological reserves that are marked with an asterisk (*) in subsection 630(b) are adjacent to or share sensitive marine environments with Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), Marine Managed Areas (MMAs), and/or Special Closures that are defined in Section 632 of these regulations. The general regulations for MPAs, MMAs, and Special Closures are in subsection 632(a) of these regulations, and site-specific regulations for each area are in subsection 632(b) of these regulations. The designated names of the MPAs in subsection 632(b) of these regulations generally correspond with the names of adjacent or overlapping ecological reserves. For example, Fagan Marsh Ecological Reserve shares marine waters with the Fagan Marsh State Marine Park and Moro Cojo Ecological Reserve is adjacent to the Moro Cojo State Marine Reserve.
