“Nature Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Here is a small gem of a nature center offering a short walk in the lagoon area. The displays
inside the center are well done. Families will enjoy an outing here.

“Tiny hideaway.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

The building itself is filled with various stuffed birds and other critters. We so enjoyed just moseying around. The walk through the reeds is quiet and provides a great opportunity to see various birds and reptiles. Very subdued pleasure.

“Good Nature Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you are a birder, or like to learn about animals in the area, this is a must! Great for little kids, and adults alike, nice displays of actual stuffed birds and ground creatures who inhabit the area. Good play area for kids and the walk through the reeds is worth it.

“Clear your head and get back to nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

In the middle of the hustle and bustle, you can still find a refuge to in the seclusion and sounds of the park like setting. Plan to spend a couple of hours refreshing your spirit and trying to identify the songs of birds that surround you. Very helpful visitors centre and they host lots of interesting and fun events.

“The name says it all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This really is a great little spot to take a short, lagoon-view walk if you're in Carlsbad or Oceanside. The views are indeed beautiful. The staff in the shop are helpful and full of information, and this center is perfect for bird lovers. They have lots of taxidermy birds (who died from various natural or accidental issues but are preserved for your edification). We loved our time here (spent about an hour) and will return when back in Carlsbad.
