Literally a few minutes from the nation's capital rest thousands of acres of serene untouched wilderness - home to many wild birds, reptiles, and fish. The Patuxent Research Center is most noted for the recovery of the Whooping Cranes, one of American's most endangered birds.
The Center has an exciting array of outdoor activities such as hunting, hiking, biking, and bird watching. Inside there is an education center that is both engaging and informative. The life size exhibits are realistic and artistic. The photographs capture some detail; there is also a slideshow on the travel blog jdrolle.blogspot.com. However nothing will substitute for a field trip or a site visit to see this national treasure for yourself. There is something for everyone to enjoy in the beauty of the wilderness.
