    Many easy trails and of course lots of birds. Some people complain that you can still hear traffic - but you are in a city! The 8 AM guided walk was lots of fun, with binoculars available for anyone n...  more »

    Great place for bird nerds. Plenty of free parking. Can observe from inside the air conditioned building or walk outside on about 3 miles of trails throughout the woods. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is a small store inside as well as a library. In addition to seeing many birds, also very likely to see turtles, frogs, squirrels, chipmunks, maybe snakes.

    The Lab is world famous, and the trails around the beautiful pond keep me coming back often. No two trips to this place are the same. If you're serious about birding, go at first light, or last light. The gift shop is great, and guided tours are also wonderful. Everyone here is knowledgable and loves nature, not just birds.

    Excellent trails for family walk year round. In the center, try the sound room -- many interesting exhibits and medial.
