  • Very cool family adventure spot. The birds are magnificent. The only complaints I've had is there are no bathrooms open at times and the creature house is seemingly never open (specifically during their posted times). But the trails, garden, and birds more than make up for it. Please visit and donate!
  • Their camping overnight for scouts was perfect for helping our Junior troop learn the basics of careful fire starting, night hiking, and shelter building.
  • Pay better attention to the hours than I did. Open does not necessarily mean open.
  • I love the birds of prey in the enclosure. Great hiking trails. And a bonus....the black pond with lots of amphibians.
  • This place is amazing. Nature and you. The trail in the woods is a special walk.
