This is a really beautiful relaxing place to go for a walk and enjoy the nature of northwestern coastal marine. First time visit here even though only 40 mins drive from home. Admission is very reasonable: $5 for adults, $3 for 60+, $1 for bird seeds. Dogs are not allowed into it, you know why once you pass the entrance.... More

My wife, daughter and I visited the bird sanctuary on March 7th, 2015. It was my wife's idea to go and initially I didn't want to make the trip. I'm glad that I did! We had a wonderful time exploring the sanctuary and identifying as many bird species as possible - which was only eight compared with other people that... More

Beautiful relaxing area to walk through and enjoy nature. Flat shaded safe walking paths past ponds and ocean to view the migratory birds. Washrooms and gift shop available at free parking lot. It is a oasis away from the city.

Went during migration. Lots of different birds coming and going. Beautiful park to walk around in. Get there early to avoid the crowds and get good parking. We try to go every year. It's very peaceful and relaxing

This is a great place to go for a stroll and see many different birds. Bring birdseed or buy it there. Some birds will take food from your hand. This is an easy walk for all ages. Will be going again soon. Have had bird land on our heads lol.

As easterners, we were amazed at the number of birds in this area that we just don't get to see. There were a number of mature bald eagles in various locations as well as a couple of immature ones that were up close and personal, making for great pictures. Tons of ducks including the most Wood Ducks I've seen in... More

We went early in the morning before it got too busy. Lots of ducks to greet you, and hope for handouts! This day the volunteers were great at telling you what birds and where they were located. some volunteers even walked us to where we could find the owls in the tall trees. This is a great walk for any... More

A great way to start off the new year by visiting with some of our little (and big) feathered friends. We got there early and therefore were able to get a good parking spot as it fills up very fast and you would have to park on the road and walk back. It was quite cold but lots of brave... More
