This place is a great asset to the community. Very educational and I highly recommend it for children and those that want to learn about Alabama wildlife.

Good trails for short walks. Access to the river but not great views because of the tall marsh grass. Gift shop has lots of animal themed items but a bit pricey. Nature center small, a bit dated, but interesting.

I love this place. You can explore the museum/information they have available, launch your own kayak, etc. etc. It's a beautiful place, with a friendly staff who knows so much.

Informative display with both stuffed and live specimens. Live specimens limited to fish and reptiles. Stuffed range from raccoons to buffalo. There is an excellent dining hall and theater that can be reserved for events. Tours of the delta and bay available.
