In recent decades, Gooseberry Falls State Park has strongly committed to conservation and preservation efforts. They’ve aimed at safeguarding its fragile ecosystems and native wildlife. They have included reforestation programs, invasive species management, and the establishment of educational facilities to promote environmental awareness among visitors.
