Closed to the Public Notice

Updated on 01/27/2021

During this unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, the health and safety of our employees and communities are our highest concerns. To ensure social distancing and comply with direction that nonessential activities be limited, the indoor areas of our centers will remain closed until further notice. 

The closed centers are the Fernald Preserve Visitors Center near Hamilton, Ohio; the Weldon Spring Site Interpretive Center in St. Charles, Missouri; the Atomic Legacy Cabin in Grand Junction, Colorado; and the Window Rock, Arizona, Community Outreach Network Office. Updates will be posted to the LM website.

In response to the Jan. 20, 2021, Executive Order on Protecting the Federal Workforce and Requiring Mask-Wearing, all visitors to our outdoor areas — including trails, gardens, and parking areas — are required to wear a mask when they’re 6 feet or closer to anyone not in their immediate group.

We will continue to update our communications, if anything changes in the status of our interpretive centers, and we look forward to the time when we can safely welcome our visitors back inside. In the meantime, we welcome you to enjoy the available outdoor spaces, trails, and online activities. Stay safe!
