Floodgates for visitors open Saturday

The big weekend is fast approaching, and U.S. Forest Service officials are getting ready.

The Visitor Center at Taylor Creek receives up to 400,000 visitors each year, and opening day is Saturday.

Mike St. Michel, director of the Visitor Center, said officials have been preparing the area by cleaning up trails, stocking the center with books and souvenirs and preparing the stream profile chamber. That requires hosing the area down, rubbing algae from the rocks and filling it up. The fish are on their way from California Fish and Game.

The center will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday. After that, for a limited time, the building will be open from Wednesday through Sunday. It will be closed on Monday and Tuesday.

Starting June 19, the center will be open daily until the end of September.
