Fort Peck Interpretive Center Opens
July 15, 2020
The Fort Peck Interpretive Center will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting Monday, July 13. There are several changes in place due to Covid-19 precautions.
Visitors are asked to wear masks and remain six feet from others outside their household while in the building. Occupancy will be limited to 50 people at any one time. One way travel will be marked through the building. Interactive displays have been a highlight of this facility, but due to Covid precautions many tactile items have been removed or closed, such as the children’s room. Visitors are asked not to touch displays.
The Interpretive Center schedule is subject to change in response to health and safety guidelines, staffing levels or other unforeseen circumstances. Powerhouse tours are not available.
Weekend activities will be offered, but will be self-contained packets that youth can complete at home or their campsite. Activities this week, July 17-19, will focus on astronomy while next week, July 23-26, is Dinosaur Days, with fun paleontology activities.
In keeping with the CDC, state and local guidance, visitors with fever, shortness of breath, a cough or other COVID-19 symptoms are asked to stay home. Frequent hand washing or sanitizing is strongly recommended.
