In an effort to reduce the threat of the spread of illness and to exercise caution, we are cancelling all facility tours and availability for bird watching until further notice. We work tirelessly to protect public health and the environment, so naturally our community and staff’s well-being is our first concern. We will continue to operate the facility 24 hours a day, 365 days a week, as always. 

Beginning March 16th we will also be keeping our entrance gate closed during the day. Once the threat of the virus has passed, visitors will need to be buzzed in via a security keypad. This is a step we have been contemplating for some time for security purposes.

We appreciate your understanding, and apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact Laura Romano, Management Analyst with any questions you may have at 805-967-4519.
