Very prolific and educational. Diverse species of birds. The guide Bret was very knowledgeable and patient with our group who had some disabilities. We took pictures and fed some of the birds! Great for families and small children.

Excellent place for a family outing. We've taken many visitors there and strongly recommend it to everyone who hasn't been. Many learning opportunities for those who want them, but also simply beautiful surroundings for folks who want to just sit or wander.
