Botanical conservatory will be a cooling station starting Thursday

The lobby of the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory will serve as a cooling station due to high temperatures and heat indices forecast for our area.

The cooling station will be available from noon-6 p.m. beginning Thursday and running through Sunday. The conservatory is at 1100 S. Calhoun St. in downtown Fort Wayne.

The Rescue Mission serves as the primary cooling station location in Fort Wayne. The Rescue Mission opens as a cooling station for men, women and families when temperatures reach 80 degrees. Its hours are 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
