Trail Center Holiday Closure


ELKO, Nev. – The California Trail Interpretive Center will close to the public on Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 22, 2012, and will reopen Friday, Nov. 23 at 9 a.m.

The Trail Center is open year-round, but is currently operating on winter hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Christmas and New Year’s Day fall on regularly scheduled closed days.

“The Trail Center will be open through the Thanksgiving weekend,” said Jan Petersen, interpretive specialist. “If you have family visiting that weekend, this is a great place to bring them for a great learning opportunity that is free as well.”

The California Trail Interpretive Center, operated by the Bureau of Land Management, is eight miles west of Elko at Hunter exit 292. The Trail Center welcomes school and tour groups. Admission is free. Visit www.californiatrailcenter.org or www.blm.gov/cv5c or call (775) 738-1849 for more information.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
