After closing for months in 2020 and having temporary hours this year, the visitor center at Spring Creek Prairie is now open for its new regular hours, Monday through Friday 8:30 am-4:30 pm, and Saturday and Sunday 8:30 am-12:30 pm. The hours have changed slightly from previous years, opening earlier on weekdays and in the mornings on weekends, with the hopes of interacting with more people, especially during the hot summer months.

“We look forward to meeting new visitors and reconnecting with returning prairie supporters,” said Kevin Poague, operations manager at Spring Creek Prairie.

Admission is free, and the center’s trails are open as always from sunrise to sunset seven days a week. Rental reservations are also being scheduled once again for weddings, meetings, parties, etc.

Masks are not required inside the visitor center or outdoors for fully vaccinated people.
