Covid – 19 Information
Postponed Opening Until July 10 for 2020

 
 
The Gunflint Trail Historical Society (GTHS) hopes you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy.
 
Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center celebrates its 10th Year in 2020. Unfortunately, this year will look much different than anticipated. 
 
The Gunflint Trail community has always been a strong, supportive group. This group came together and persisted through the process of developing Chik-Wauk Museum in 2005 and pulled together during the tragedy of the Ham Lake Fire of 2007. In 2020 the GTHS asks for your support as it faces unprecedented health challenges.
 
Due to the unpredictable nature of this viral event, the GTHS is unable to ensure that Chik-Wauk's opening or events will occur. Please stay in touch and be assured that everything possible is being done to engage GTHS members and the community.
 
Creative ways to open the Museum and Nature Center, while still keeping employees, volunteers, and guests as safe as possible are being explored.
 
Group events may be canceled or rescheduled. When Chik-Wauk does open, the number of visitors in the building will be limited. Social distancing and the wearing of facial coverings are anticipated. Touching and handling of soft, difficult-to-sanitize Museum items and socializing within the building will be discouraged. Staff and volunteers will be disinfecting the restroom facilities and buildings on a regular basis. Other temporary changes may be put in place as needed. The goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy, and then get back to normal operational procedures as soon as this health crisis has passed.
 
Updates will be posted on the Chik-Wauk website and through emails. If any of you would like to be on the list of updates for Chik-Wauk contact Bonnie at chikwauk@boreal.org and she will make sure you are part of this list.
 
Thank you for your continued support to the Gunflint Trail Historical Society and Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center. When you are able to visit, the GTHS will do everything possible to make your visit to the Campus enjoyable and secure.
