Sections of Sachuest Point Welcome Center Closed Starting Feb. 21
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is currently working on exhibits for Sachuest Point Visitor Center. As part of this work, sections of the visitor center will be closed beginning Feb. 21, 2012. The front entrance, lobby and main exhibit hall will be closed for approximately 4-6 weeks. However, the north side entrance to the restroom and classroom will remain open to visitors.
This work is being done to reconfigure the area for the new exhibits. The actual habitat exhibits and interpretive panels will be installed in late spring.
