This is a fair "attraction"….fairly interesting, fairly boring too. This "tourist attraction" is not opened on Sundays, the time of the week when most people like to take day trips….

Jack Miner's is an amazing sanctuary built in early 1930's to help build the population of Canada Geese. It is the development of the research and monitoring of migrating birds as well. A small museum and observation building are not to be missed but you must have an interest in the desires of the Miner Family.

I have seen more geese in farmers fields than what I have seen there.There used to be a lot more here and in my opinion it has really gone downhill.

This was somewhere we used to love to bring our kids and later grandkids but it has gone down hill badly. Really needs revamping and updating .... full to see the geese return in the fall.
