This spot is gorgeous. The trails are very well marked and they have distances that are manageable even for my 2 and 4 year old's little legs. The store wasn't open when we were there, but it looked really nice. We saw so many birds in the short time we were there, my kids loved it. I definitely suggest bringing... More

We were there for a dinner and speaker, but during the cocktail; hour we strolled around. Lots of trails for walking, and a great display of hunting birds. The Barred Owls were amazing. They "talked" to us! I will be going back with the kids.

The McLane Audubon center is just beautiful. I just had my wedding there June 13th and it was magical. We decided to have both ceremony & reception outside. The ceremony we had outside in the Audubon gardens and the reception was out in a meadow under tents. It couldn't have been more perfect. The staff were INCREDIBLE and went above... More

Took my young granddaughter, who loved the rescued birds and hiking around the more open area of the woods near the bird sanctuary. We didn't attempt the grassier trails. Inside there wasn't much to do when we were there, though they have a nice little gift shop. All in all, a nice place to take the kids for a hike... More

This highly informative visitor centre has great facilities and displays. The trails are a little disappointing, in that the lake views are very limited (overgrowth of vegetation) and you'd be very lucky to see a loon! The staff are very friendly and helpful, and there are restrooms on site. The staff will let you know about boat trips out, going... More

My kids have been with school trips and love going. Seemed to have a good time and learned a lot. They said they would go again.
