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.

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.
