A Great Nature Preserve

Very nice nature preserve with a Birds of Prey exhibit of injured hawks and owls. The only place I know of that's pretty reliable for Barred Owl sightings. Just watch for ticks.

This is a great place to bring your children or grandchildren . A rustic wildlife sanctuary, there are hiking trails, great educational exhibits. A wildlife refuge, you'll see various native animals and birds who are recuperating from injuries , and you'll see them in as natural a state you'll find anywhere. Terrific on a chilly or rainy vacation day -... More

You can visit the nature center building and gift shop and look outside, you can visit the owls in their cages, or you can walk the extensive well-groomed wide (keeps the ticks away) of the woods and meadows and waterways of this compact, but varied nature center. Boardwalks take you over the wet spots and much of the area we... More

Many attractions can be overwhelming especially to the younger children. We took our two grandchildren to the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center this past month. The children are 18 months and 4-1/2 years. We spent a great deal of time watching the turtle and frog exhibits. Nothing fancy, just a close up look with little competition from other children. Outside you... More

We went in early September. really not much to see. A very good walk, but a little on the longer side. Maybe in spring this would be a better place to go.

I have to admit we didn't get out of the car, as it was a really cold, blustery day in late winter. But, we drove through it to visit for the afternoon with friends who live on the edge of it; and via asking them about it, we would recommend it! Maybe we'll go back one day!

I found the hiking trails to be extensive, well labelled and very nice. One easy trail went around a pond and we saw countless bullfrogs and interesting butterflies/dragonflies. Other trails are connected by a series of wooden boardwalks. On the grounds there are a few pens where you can see injured owls/birds of prey that aren't able to be returned... More

Nice and quiet , we went during mild heat and after rain so many mosquitoes . We made the most of it and had fun . Next time we''ll plan our hike in cooler weather . Pack a lunch and eat at the table by the parking area after you hike .
