FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - This weekend is the last chance to visit the Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort for a couple of months.
The center will close for the winter beginning Sunday and will reopen on Feb. 14.
Manager Laurie Davison says visitation is usually low in the winter, making it a good time to work on new exhibits and prepare programs for the next year. The center plans to update several older indoor exhibits and complete plans for larger upcoming exhibits.
Work is expected to begin during the closure on a new outdoor prairie exhibit. It's to include a walk-through aviary, interactive features and a giant quail egg for kids to "hatch" themselves. The project is scheduled for completion in March.
