Extending Our Temporary Closure: COVID-19

March 27, 2020

Posted by Lake Erie Nature and Science Center

Lake Erie Nature & Science Center continues to follow the best guidelines from the CDC, State of Ohio and public health officials to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of staff, visitors and volunteers. Due to the rapidly changing nature of this pandemic, Lake Erie Nature & Science Center will extend its temporary closure and reopen as soon as Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and the Ohio Department of Health provide directives indicating it is safe to do so.

Center leadership will continue to monitor the directives and guidelines issued by the Ohio Department of Health and communicate updates on our website and social media channels throughout the temporary closure.

Refunds will be issued to preregistered patrons for programs that are cancelled due to this extended closure. Registrants with questions regarding programs and refunds may email info@lensc.org.

The Center will not accept animals into our wildlife rehabilitation program during the temporary closure. The Center’s resident animals and current wildlife rehabilitation patients will continue to receive high quality care from wildlife staff. Community members with questions about ill or injured wildlife may email wildlife@lensc.org.

All employees of Lake Erie Nature & Science Center are following the State of Ohio’s Stay-At-Home Order and are working remotely as possible.

Lake Erie Nature & Science Center sends good wishes to our visitors, volunteers and supporters during this unprecedented time. Please stay safe and healthy!
