Washington Pavilion science center closed for mite infestation

Posted: Updated:

The Kirby Science Discovery Center and the Raven Children's Studio are closed until Monday because of a mite infestation in the turtle enclosure.

Two box turtles in the science center were found to have red mites. The area will be professionally fumigated over the weekend, and will reopen when it's found safe for both humans and turtles.

The CineDome and the Visual Arts Center will remain open for regularly scheduled hours.
