FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A wildlife education center at Frankfort is preparing to close for the winter.

Visitors have until Nov. 27 to visit the Salato Wildlife Education Center before the wintertime closing. The center will reopen March 1.

The seasonal closure allows the staff to do maintenance work and upgrade exhibits.

The center draws about 75,000 visitors each year. It features a variety of native animals, including a black bear, an eagle, a bobcat, elk, deer, bison, snakes and fish. The center features indoor exhibits and miles of hiking trails open to the public.

The center is operated by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

The center is open Tuesdays through Saturdays but is closed on Sundays, Mondays and state holidays.
