our grandsons had a really nice experience touching and seeing all the wild life. Very interesting for 5 and 7 year old's . They enjoy walking the trail,the 5 year old chose to lead us. he really got into it. We had a very nice 2 hour trip.

Blink and you'll miss the small sign and obscure entrance, but go back and visit the Buena Vista Audubon Center. Go early in the morning for the best bird-watching, and walk the nature trail ready to take pictures. Kids' activities in the summer, too!

For the second time in almost 3 years I passed by and stopped at this nature centre. The first time I had a nice conversation with the volunteer. This time, traveling by bike again, I had an ugly encounter with the old male hag who was manning the center. I had parked my loaded touring bike against the wall of the building, as I had been welcomed to do previously. After I went in, I started walking around and the guy asked me if it was my bike outside. When I replied yes, he made a gruff statement about thinking how it belonged to some homeless person (he was clearly insulting the homeless). I don't know why he would have thought that - the area gets plenty of touring cyclists. He then mumbled something else as I walked around the exhibits.

Once I saw the fellow camped out, I didn’t feel safe and immediately returned to our car. I called later to report this to the docent and he said that it is a common occurrence and that the police go through there asking them to clear out a couple times a day. If you are walking alone, better to walk the trail after a police visit. Check with the docent. …

The center was closed so we walked around what we could of the nature trail. Not as much to see as I was expecting. Very swampy and not a lot of birds - probably just the time of year. A very nice native grass (with labels) area.
