What a great treasure. Beautiful setting and tons of information. We didn't have time to see the whole place so will be sure to be back. Our kids loved it and the grown ups did too.

This place is wonderful! It's free and it's great for the entire family. We actually saw pelicans there! We were amazed. I never knew that there were pelicits in that area. Had a blast!

We love going to the sanctuary - it is such a great learning experience for the kids, and inexpensive as well. It allows kids to wind down out in nature. We love going here and are glad to be so close by!

My husband and I went to the animal sanctuary to take a break from the Bay Beach amusement park, and we're so glad we did! The grounds are lovely and quiet, and there were many animals to see. The staff was very helpful and knew a lot about the animals they cared for. We were able to get up close... More

I've lived in Green Bay (off/on) quite some time. When I'm here I ALWAYS visit the WLS. You won't see a "ton" of diff. animals/exhibits (not a Zoo-so mostly geese that u can feed w/corn, wolves, Deer) just a sanctuary/park filled w/beautiful nature for ALL ages. I've never met anyone that didn't enjoy this place.

This was a fun place to visit. Lots of paved trails and interesting animals. There is a feeding area for geese and ducks. Make sure to wear bug spray on the hiking trails, there are lots of mosquitoes!

We had some time to burn while waiting for our Lambeau tour so we went to the sanctuary for a couple hours. Great place to see some animals with the kids and really nice to know how many animals this place is helping and returning to the wild. Great job to all those who work at the sanctuary and philanthropists... More

Large grounds with lots of walking trails. Pretty good animal exhibits. Nice place to be outside and enjoy nature. We tried to attend the wolf feeding but no one ever showed up to feed. It was clear the wolves knew it was time, they were very hyper and appeared to be excited to be fed, but it never happened. We... More

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!
