The Great Falls Discovery Center is a partnership which includes DCR, US Fish and Wildlife, Town of Montague, and “Friends of GFDC”. If the United States Congress and President Obama do not agree on a fiscal budget by Friday, April 8th, then this coming weekend programming at the Discovery Center will be cancelled. U.S. Government employees, such as those that conduct the programming at the GFDC, are not allowed to do their normal activities on a volunteer basis. A government shutdown can affect many facets of community life that sometimes is taken for granted.
Please call the Discovery Center at 863-3221 if you were planning on attending the Second Saturday Children's workshop on April 9th.
