  • Great experience, wish I'd brought a hat. Fantastic displays of drangonflys and marsh flowers. Was confused to see a river otter but blown away by what seemed like a Disney adventure unfolding with al...  more »
  • Here, you can walk for hours and enjoy the flora and fauna. The calibration and Chipmunks, as well as certain birds take the food directly from the hand of the visitors. Simply just great.

  • Great trails, great views. Animals and birds, 10$ entrance fee but it is worth it and well maintained. You have to be out by 4:30 though so give yourself lots of time  more »

  • Has some great trails with some nice sights. You can buy some seeds for 25 cents to feed the birds and chipmunks with, and overall some nice trails. We also went to see the show with the birds of prey, which was very entertaining and the hosts were great. Good place if you want a nice walk and/or a nice show. (Please don't bring your kids if they aren't interested in this stuff, they will be annoying for others)
  • I had a great experience. A nice little getaway to go with your partner. NOTE: Please don't bring your aggravating, naughty children that misbehave. The parents try to enlighten their children's enthusiasm by bringing them here. Little do they know that their kids aren't interested. In result, they become idle, running all over the place. IF you have children that are interested in Wildlife & beautiful scenery, then, this is the place. On a whole, it's a must see.
  • This place you can Easy spent half a day here by walking through the trails and paddle through the marsh by canoe . The canoe guide Sarah did an excellent job explaining the wildlife there and it is a must. However due to lack of direction signs you can get lost easy at trail junctions
  • Recommend exploring with plant and insect ID book. Fantastic for kids. (I went to their day camp in the 90s; this place is still awesome today!)
  • Very nice park. My 5 years old boy enjoyed it a lot. He could even get to keep an owl on his hand. Unforgettable experience for him. Will go there again for sure.
