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. There are marshes, a small lake, forested areas. The last time I was there we saw several "rare" to the area birds including Sandhill Cranes which typically one doesn't see... More

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.

I used to live not far from here, one day I decided to stop n walk around. It's nice in the spring or fall on a dry day to see all the flora n fauna. A nice place to get some peace and enjoy the sounds of nature. Unless you are a wetlands or bird person, I think only locals... More

We have been coming here for years and it just keeps getting better! In June we visited to try out the new Bobcat trail that goes from the visitor center to the viewing deck on the north end of the wetlands (south end of town). It's a great trail and we saw many birds and even more wildflowers! There was... More
