A great place to visit for families with lots of information and good trails around the preserve. Staff also very helpful regarding local bird watching 'hotspots'.

As a birder I was very impressed with what they are doing at Jackson bottom Wetlands. The paths are close enough to many areas of water so you can get up close views of the birds. There is a very nice visitors center with lots of information and they offer a large number of educational classes and events. This is... More

I've enjoyed hiking here for a long time. Used to go with my daughter and a sack lunch when she was younger. Lots of birds and Nutria.

I take out of town visitors here to see birds in every season. The trails are very well maintained and the explanatory labels on the plants are fun to read.

Avoid this location in the spring to early summer if you have allergies to pollen. The place is great for people who want to go nature watching. Don't bring your stupid dogs as dogs will chase and harass other animals, as well as dump all over the place where people step. I'd also avoid bringing children for the same reason... More

We have only been there is the spring but so fun. Lots of birds and their babies. You an just spend half an hour or half a day here. We might take a lunch next time. The longer you stay the more chance you have of seeing something interesting.

I used to bring my kids here often and look forward to bringing my grandson when he is a bit older. The bald eagle nest is really impressive. The staff are all friendly and very good with children.
