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.

This is a very nice park with rambling pathways through the woods, where you can view many native animal species such as wolves,( which accommodated us with about 10 minutes of howling), fox, cougar, bobcat, and many, many birds of all types and sizes. You can feed the deer and the ducks/geese with food pellets you get from old gum... More

My daughter and I always get a big bucket of corn to feed the Ducks and geese. We love walking around looking at the animals and love petting the deer.

Oh this is so fun! The animals and birds are great and the beauty of the area is so neat. This place not only is Educational, but helps and assist the animals that are hurt and need help. Children will love this place over and over for years.

I had some extra time while in Green Bay on business today, so I decided to stop by the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary...while it was 0 degrees outside. Even though it was mind-numbingly cold out, and most of the sanctuary is outdoors, I still had a great time. The raptor exhibit had a decent amount of different types of birds... More

Truly a relaxing place with many water foul. places to picnic. The children stayed busy on their own as they were entertained by the animals. It was a very pleasant time.

We enjoyed our trip here quite bit. You certainly can't beat the price - free! We enjoyed the otters very much and spent a great deal of time checking out the birds. The animals are spread out, but the amount of walking is quite manageable. Neat place.
