It's educational, only takes a couple of hours to explore and it's FREE! There is a picnic area where you can enjoy a snack with the geese and seagulls too.

We've been going to Bay Beach amusement park for years, but last summer was our first experience in the wildlife preserve. What a gem! So much to see. You can feed the geese off the bridge with bags of corn (inexpensive and available inside when you enter the sanctuary)...or feed chipmunks right out of your hand if you're patient enough!

This was a favorite place to visit during my childhood and it's even better now. There are animals to visit both indoors and out, geese and ducks to commune with, trails for walking and cross country skiing, lots of benches for people watching, and great info about nature. It's big enough to be fun but small enough not to be... More

My children loved our visit to the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary! There is so much for them to do, see, and explore! There are many different trails to walk and so much wildlife to see. The main building has many hands on exhibits for kids to touch and explore. They have a great indoor play area too. We can't wait... More

The Bay Beach wildlife sanctuary is a one of a kind experience and you can't help but be touched by how the owners and carers have looked after the animals so well. The park is split up into two parts: The first is the wolf and mammal area and second, which I spent most of my time, the birds. There... More

The property is very nice and near Bay Beach Park. It is open year round. Enjoyed seeing many animals up close, learning their names and reading about where they came from. The water running through the park was nice and the waterfall made a pretty backdrop for picture taking. Plus it was free.

Not far from downtown Green Bay is the 700 acres Wildlife Sanctuary. You can take a leisurely stroll and see wolves, cats, deer, and many other animals, including thousands of geese and ducks. Buy some corn and watch those bird become your best friend.

This 700 acre urban wildelife refuge is a great spot for the families. There are indoor activities as well as plenty of animals and wildlife to see outdoors. Nice walking trails that aren't difficult for the little ones. Be sure to check out the programs they have for kids.

We got here kind of late, so we couldn't do all we wanted, but it was very nice. Interesting animals. Some don't have enough space. I was happy that most that are kept could not survive in the wild because of injuries or imprinting. Nice trails.
