COVID-19 Message

Cedar Run’s Nature Center will begin a slow, measured reopening on Wednesday, July 8th

The Nature Center will be open to the public at reduced hours – Mon thru Fri 10am-4pm and Sat-Sun 10am-3pm. We appreciate your understanding as we adapt staff schedules to ensure rigorous cleaning and maintain the health and safety of our guests, summer campers, staff, and volunteers. The outdoor hiking trails and Wildlife Housing Area will remain open until dusk and fee boxes may be used after hours.

Currently, we are limiting occupancy to 15 persons at a time; if there is a line, please visit briefly. Staff have the right to reduce this number if needed. During Phase 1 of our opening only visitor admissions and the gift shop will be available. We regret that the reptile room, playroom and restrooms will remain closed at this time. Outside restrooms will continue to be provided, as well as, foot-pump hand washing stations.

The Nature Center will be using one-way movement – entering through the front door and exiting out the back. Exceptions will be made for individuals with disabilities, requiring the use of our handicapped entrance.

Social Distancing: Social distancing of six feet will be maintained within the building and should continue to be observed along the trails in the Wildlife Housing Area.

Face Coverings: Face coverings are required for visitors, staff, and volunteers inside the Nature Center. Individuals, over age 2, without a face covering will not be admitted. In the event you do not have or are unable to wear a face covering, the alternate admission options (fee boxes and text to give) will remain in effect.

Hand Sanitizer: Hand sanitizer will be available at the building entry and exit and guests are encouraged to use them. Staff will sanitize their hands between transactions with guests.

Cleaning: Cleaning protocols for public spaces have been expanded, with sanitization of all surfaces scheduled regularly.

Picnic Area: The picnic pavilion will not be open to the public, as it will be used solely for our summer campers.

Cedar Run remains committed to the health and safety of visitors and staff, and will be evaluating reopening policies, procedures and hours; changes may be implemented at any time.

These are difficult economic and pandemic times, consider making a generous donation so that we can continue to provide life-saving care to the many animals that rely on us.
