The Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan is adjusting its operating hours for the summer and fall.

Starting Tuesday, June 19, the regional district environmental interpretive centre in Mission Creek Regional Park will be open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., as well as Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

"The later morning opening and later evening closing provides more flexibility for visitors to the interpretive facility during the upcoming busy summer months," said regional district communications officer Bruce Smith.

"These hours will continue until Sunday, Oct. 21, when the EECO returns to its 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. winter and spring hours."

Last year more than 32,000 visitors stopped into the EECO to view its hands-on displays.

The current Hunters in the Sky exhibit runs until mid-July. In August, the annual Kokanee exhibit will take centre stage in the EECO.

The facility also serves as the primary home base for the Summer Nature Camp program and for parks services program registration and regional park bookings.
