Went there as part of our birding organization's state meeting and this was an organized field trip. Loved how beautiful and clean it was. Enjoyed the birding and wildflowers. Also enjoyed seeing how they maintain it and are making improvements to it, for the people and the wildlife. Hope to visit it again.
