COVID-19 Update

Rowe Sanctuary understands concerns about the COVID-19 situation and is following the recommendations of the CDC and health officials. The nature center is currently open and crane viewing tours are continuing, but if individuals with reservations are concerned about travel we are offering a full refund. If there are changes, we will update our social media, website and send out a text and email to those with reservations.

If you still plan on traveling, remember to follow these important guidelines:

  • Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with those who are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water aren't available, use an alcohol-based sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
