Definitely worth a short visit. They have two cameras showing nest of Purple Warblers and Ospreys with young in the nests. Nice short walk to sound side. Very nice and quiet. Great for bird watching.

If you want to appreciate nature, then there is nothing better to discover the Coastal marsh area, see the different wildlife including an eagle family that lives near by. Great place to relax.
