  • If you really want to know what's going on in conservation with this lovely piece of paradise then you got to stop by here
  • I would give this craphole negative stars if I could. It’s so run down it looks abandoned. There was animal poo in two places on the decking outside the center. The butterfly room looked like a store room for plants in pots. There was a butterfly. We walked the trails out back. More run down decking back to trails that haven’t seen maintenance in a long time. At one point we thought we were at Jurassic Park...after it was abandoned. I was waiting for a velociraptor to pop out of the brush. The mosquitos were so bad along the unkept trail I’m sure I’ll wake tomorrow with West Nile!!! I’m not sure what the people giving this place 4 or 5 stars saw. Maybe they just went into the building. I’ll agree it was nice in there. Some cool turtles. But everything outside was horrible.
  • Great location to view mangroves and waterways. It is much better viewed from a kayak as there are few places to view birds from the drive.
