The interpretive center is open daily

HOURS: 10:00am – 5:00pm


Attention visitors to the Interpretive Center: we are experiencing a water pressure issue that has forced us to temporarily close the bathrooms in the Interpretive Center. There is an ADA accessible porta-potty in our parking lot and we are working on solutions and hope to have the plumbing back up and running very soon! Please bring your own drinking water as well. We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause.
