The majority of the centers will open every day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. They are located near Chamberlain, New Effington, Salem, Spearfish, Tilford, Valley Springs, Vermillion, Vivian, Wasta and Wilmot.

The facilities in Chamberlain, Vermillion and Valley Springs will remain open through October to assist hunters and travelers during the fall season. The other centers will begin to close in mid-September.

The department says more than 675,000 people stop by the centers each year.
