The Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary was larger and more involved than I expected. I love the idea of rehabilitating animals and allowing the public to see the process. There were a variety of animals no longer able to live in the wild due to wing, eye and head injuries, imprinting, etc. Many animals, such as coyotes, wolves & birds (everything... More

Two modern buildings with wildlife viewing areas, a wildlife walk that is heaven for birders, a small zoo, a rehabilitation center, programs for children. The leadership has created a remarkable place...and yes you can still buy corn to feed to the ducks.

This sanctuary in Green Bay is a great spot to walk through, or hike the trails. We really enjoyed our visit. We didn't get through the whole park because it was in the 90's, and sunny and humid. We went in 2 buildings which had lots of info and exhibits for kids. They were also air-conditioned! We bought small bags... More

Bay Beach and The Wildlife Sanctuary offer free or very affordable family fun! The Wildlife Sanctuary offers corn to feed the ducks and geese for a small fee, along with a quaint gift shop and penny flattening machine! There are various exhibits that are informational and fun for the kids and adults! When you walk to see the outdoor animal... More

If you are in the Green Bay area anyway, it is worth a drive over to this Wildlife Sanctuary. The walking is very pleasant and you will see some of the animals that have been rehabilitated.

We went to Bay Beach with a 3 year old who enjoyed the displays. It's part of the Green Bay Parks Department and they hold a number of educational programs. The site is showing its age, but kids can still enjoy it and learn. Of course a draw to the place is the price.....it's free!

The sanctuary park is similar to a zoo, but has fewer animals. The admission is free and you can view a variety of caged animals, from wolves to a golden eagle.

It is nice that it is free. There is a lot of walking in between animals. The ones we did see were not very active. I would have been upset if there was a fee. It was like a really bad zoo.
