The center is truly awesome and near other attractions so you can hit a few stops. The grounds are fantastic as they are covered in trees so you have a lot of shade available during the summer. The natural setting also allows for several local birds to be present so it really adds to the experience.
Volunteers can be seen all through the exhibit checking on birds and continuously cleaning out water bowls. I was very impressed with the level of dedication shown by all of their employees and volunteers. The birds are beautiful and each individual story is shared so you know how they arrived and how long they have been there. The cages are large so it is easy to observe the birds without causing stress.
The trail was much longer than I had anticipated but I enjoyed every minute of it. Wear comfortable shoes and make sure to bring water if it is a hot day. If you are lucky you may catch them doing some training at the amphitheater. This was well worth the stop and should not be missed if you are in the area!
