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.

Feed the geese and ducks, wander thru the enclosures. Bring the kids and your camera. FREE! A wonderful place to visit, especially in the Spring when the geese and ducks are nesting and then a bit later in the season with all the babies are wandering around with their moms. There are also walking trails and you are right across... More

Brought my German relation here, mom, dad and 3 young girls, and they all had a lot of fun. They especially liked the slide from the 2nd floor to the first floor. There is alot to read and many small interaction doors to open and read as well. Then, going outside and feeding the geese and ducks, having them eat... More

The Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary is a very nice place to spend the afternoon (even in the winter!). It's smaller than a zoo, but it's free, and there are a lot of animals to see. There are a variety of animals including wolves, deer, a porcupine, reptiles, bats, otters, and a lot of birds! There is a cute pond (i.e.... More

Just an outstanding way to spend an hour or two in the Green Bay Area. Who knew that this small bird sanctuary was this nice. You don't have to be a bird fan to really enjoy going here. Nice pleasant place to walk, and simply enjoy the trees and water. Plus there are birds there most folks never see in... More

The Wildlife Sanctuary is free, and fun for families to explore the woods and trails and visit the animals. There is a small zoo with wild wolves, and deer and also caged animals. There is a pond with a bridge across where you feed the ducks and geese. The woods are beautiful with the fall leaves and there are many... More

The Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary is a pretty cool place to visit. I was quite impressed that it was free. They have quite a few local animals you can visit. They harbor a lot of injured birds that cannot be rereleased. They have a ton of ducks and geese just wandering around begging for food. I am curious if someone... More

This is a nice little sanctuary. It is more geared towards children. There isn't a lot to keep adults occupied. It killed an hour of time.
