A beautiful day in January, we took a stroll to the bird watching platform overlooking the area. Although we didn't see many birds this trip, it was still pleasant. Always enjoy coming, especially in the spring and summer, usually lots of birds and some wildlife around.

this is a true nature conservatory. It is on the flight path of migratory birds, and hosts a multitude of resident flora and fauna. For those willing to take the time, there is an interpretive Center that is first class with staff on hand to answer questions and give information (during day). Great for nature watching, hiking, or personal reflection.... More

I go from time to time to this place, because it is a relaxing walk around the lake. They taking good care of all the decks and walkways. Also awesome to walk in the summer time, because of all the trees.

This is a fun activity to spend a day with kids or a "free" date night. The little museum in the main building area is fun, has lots of models, and information videos aimed at children. The walking paths are fun, and you are almost guaranteed to see an abundance of wildlife whilst walking around in there. I've seen anything... More

There are long and short walking trails around the lake. Also, bird blinds for viewing. We mainly saw ducks, crows and blue or red dragon flies. Others had seen moose and deer occasionally.
