Rowe Sanctuary Visitors' Center Reopens Wednesday

Audubon's Rowe Sanctuary will reopen on July 15 with new operating hours

The Iain Nicolson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary will reopen to the public on Wednesday, July 15. The hours will be 10:00 am-2:00 pm Monday through Friday and trails will continue to be open sunrise to sunset.

As the summer progresses, building hours may be expanded as staff adjusts to keeping the building safe for all. Masks will be required for those entering the visitor center; they will not be required outside if social distancing practices are followed. The center will have multiple hand sanitizing stations and will be strongly encouraging people to follow the CDC guidelines posted throughout the building.  

“We are excited to welcome visitors back,” said Bill Taddicken, Center Director for Rowe, “but we do want people to be safe. We’re asking those who are sick or otherwise not feeling well to stay home and recover completely before coming to visit.”

For questions about the center reopening or the new operating policies, please email or call (308) 468-5282.
