Great place for a forest walk, with a side of wetlands! Wildlife and birds aplenty, and it's even possible to go on a guided canoe tour through the river's coves and inlets. One of our favorite places.

What a great place for taking a walk to see some nature. Perfect at bird migration seasons. They have a bluebird field set up when you come into the center. Information center. Check it out.

If you are even close to this you must stop and check out the Eagles, and other birds. We were cold but once the Eagles started flying we forgot all about it.
