BOULDER CITY – The newly renovated Alan Bible Visitor Center at Lake Mead National Recreation Area, which reopened Feb. 15, is undergoing some changes.

Starting Monday, the visitor center will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays. It will remain open Wednesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

During operating hours, visitors can now enjoy a new feature at the visitor center. Every 30 minutes, “Life in the Desert,” a 20-minute high-definition movie about Lake Mead National Recreation Area is shown in the auditorium that is equipped with a new audio visual system.

“The movie captures the essence of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area through the eyes of the visitors, the complexity of the water, and the beauty of the natural and cultural history,” said Jennifer Haley, the park’s chief of Visitor Services and Education.

Voiced by actress Stockard Channing and produced by Chuck Dunkerly at Harpers Ferry Center, “Life in the Desert” is the park’s first professionally produced film. In addition to the movie, the visitor center offers an array of National Park Service exhibits, the Western National Parks Association gift shop and a desert botanical garden.

Although the main visitor center will be closed two days a week, visitors will still be able to receive park information at park entrance stations and at the information center at park headquarters at 601 Nevada Way, Boulder City. The information center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Visitor information is also available online at www.nps.gov/lake or by phone at (702) 293-8990.
