This place is awesome! They have some cool animals to look at, but the best pArt is the wolves. Watching them interact with each other, and feeding time is amazing! One time we were there when the handlers were in the exhibit with them, they were checking the wolves over and brushing their coat. It was incredible!

I went here first thing in the morning. They open at 8am. The sanctuary is free to enter and no parking fee. You can walk all over the grounds and the waterfall is beautiful. The corn to feed the ducks is only $1.00 for a Brown bag full. The gift shop was reasonably priced. The only complaint was,I had to... More

This place was up to its web page. The animals were placed in such a natural way that you enjoyed the surrounding area as much as there natural cages. The only downside the wolves didn't want to cooperate so we missed out on the feeding. Lots of very nice play break areas for kids and benches for older ones. No... More

The wildlife sanctuary is probably the best free attraction you could possibly find in the Green Bay area, and what makes it great is that it's a great stop for anyone of any age. I love being able to get a little escape from the city life of Green Bay, because as soon as you step out of the car... More

After a lunch at Kroll's, I needed to walk off some of that butter burger-belly of greasy goodness, so a friend suggested a visit to the Bay Beach Amusement Park or the Wildlife Sanctuary. Seeing as how I enjoyed my food and felt I would not enjoy it nearly as much in reverse, I opted against the barf-o-wheel and in... More

This was a fantastic little surprise! I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Wildlife Sanctuary. Especially the Nature Center. They had all sorts of animals, and it was all free.

Good for a few hours walking and seeing animals.This was our first time, and it was nice with one small problem. The trees or other plants were sending out their seeds, which are cotton-like bits, that were falling constantly like a slow, snow fall. There were mountains of this on the ground, and everywhere. We had to clean off our... More

My boys (ages 3-13) and I had a good visit and there were many birds in the sanctuary. Nature center building is very nice with better than average displays. I see here photos of wolves, somehow we missed them while visiting! Great photo opportunities within the trails! I was glad we stopped in to check it out. My only complaint... More

The wildlife sanctuary is a great getaway in nature. This is one of the only places in WI that you are able to purchase corn ($1) and feed the ducks, geese and deer. The wildlife is friendly, and sometimes, the geese will eat right out of your hand. We were honored to attend during a time when the babies were... More

Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary has a lot of nice walking trails, a boardwalk across a lake, an observation building to see animal ambassadors, gift shop, nature center. I went during the Frosty Family Fun Night and got to meet some of the animal ambassadors and learned about wildlife in Wisconsin.
