• The Great Plains Nature Center is open.

    Per current CDC Guidelines, vaccinated persons are not required to wear a mask. We ask that unvaccinated persons put on a mask prior to entry (if you do not have a mask, we can provide one for you at the front desk). We ask that you help us be a community health partner by practicing social distancing and observing room capacities during your visit.
