closed every Monday in September, then October 4 and 12. We are opening 
nets at about 6:30 a.m. and we start closing between 11 a.m. and 12 noon. 
We will open later and/or close earlier if it is very hot, very cold, wet, 
windy, etc. There are school groups most weekday mornings, usually arriving 
around 9:30. Best times to visit, if you like lots of birds and fewer 
humans, are early mornings during the week and Sundays.
