I went to the open house and it was great! Everyone was friendly and answered any questions. They have an excellent group of people working and volunteering. Check out the raptors.

You definitely learn a ton about the animals that live there and even the different environments that make up the area. It's a great place to just stroll around or take a guided tour. I would go back here over and over again.
