Upon reopening, the Sanctuary's new hours will be Wednesday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. with the last admission at 11 a.m.
All visitors must be off the boardwalk before the closing time unless a special program is being conducted by the Corkscrew staff. One day a month from October through March, we offer "Corkscrew After Hours." This is the only time that we allow visitors on the boardwalk after dark. This regulation was established to minimize the impact on wading birds that roost or nest near the boardwalk.
This regulation applies each month of the year. Unauthorized vehicles found in the parking area after 6 p.m. may be towed at the owner's expense.
Please lock your car, leave nothing visible inside your car to passers-by and take all valuables with you.
Please leave your pets at home where they are comfortable. For everyone's safety, we allow only service animals on the boardwalk.
Warning about flies:
Admission is valid for two consecutive days. Ticket prices include self-guided access to the boardwalk and Blair Audubon Visitor Center. On days when guided tours are offered, they are complimentary with the price of admission.
