ELKO, Nev. – The California Trail Interpretive Center begins its winter hours Sunday, Sept. 21. The Center will open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.
“After school started and the days began to get shorter, our visitation started to drop off a bit” said Park Ranger Gary Koy. “Since some of our staff has gone back to school, we made the decision to reduce hours but remain open on weekends to make it easier for local residents to visit.”
The Center will focus on working with teachers and school groups and will provide regularly scheduled presentations on Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. Saturday programs will be general interest and Sunday programs will be oriented for families.
Since the grand opening of the Trail Center on June 2, 2012, the Center has hosted over 44,000 visitors.
The California Trail Interpretive Center, operated by the Bureau of Land Management, is eight miles west of Elko at Hunter exit 292. The Trail Center welcomes school and tour groups. Admission is free. Visit www.californiatrailcenter.org or www.blm.gov/cv5c or call (775) 738-1849 for more information.
