  • This was a great facility. I had no idea it was here until I stumbled upon the reference on a plaque at The Perot Museum
  • Great potential here. Trails were overgrown. Nice building
  • WONDERFUL area and the staff is amazing as well. 5/5 highly recommended
  • It was late summer and hot and dry and too late in the morning when they opened at 9 to see anything other than a few wading birds. However, I found they have a parking lot outside the gates, so you can arrive really early and see some activity that you would otherwise have surely missed by the time they opened at 9 on Sunday. The visitor center was AC cooled and had a nice interpretation center inside.
  • Great place for birdwatching, hiking and being outside. Friendly staff will help make your visit great.
