We are grateful that our doors are open
and we are welcoming so many of you back to the butterflies and aquariums
here in Sioux Falls, South Dakota!

We have implemented the following policy

to ensure the health of our guests, volunteers, staff, and animals:

*Guests age 6 and up are strongly requested to wear face coverings when in the facility.*

*Employees and volunteers are undergoing a health screening when reporting for shifts, and wearing masks at all times.

*Hand sanitizing stations are located throughout the facility.

*The touch pools are closed until further notice to ensure the safety of the animals.

We greatly appreciate your continued support during these difficult times.
We ask that our guests partner with us to make the experience safe for everyone.

Thank you for your understanding and we can’t see wait to see you soon!

Conserve. Educate. Inspire.
