Keep in mind that the wetlands are more of a preserve for plants, birds and other animals, than a park for people There is a cool lookout, store, and museum with taxidermy of all the critters found in the area. This is a great place for bird watchers,... More

Reminds me of Florida due to the types of birds. Well set up for visitors, lots of class trips go here. Very large area, hundreds of acres so a great place to spend a couple of hours. Also has a nice, informative nature center.

Steve is an excellent teacher, he is knowledgeable and respectful. He took us on a sunset/moonrise walk. We didn't see the moon (clouds) but we did see a bald eagle, and many other birds and wildlife. This was a great free activity for my family.

Love this place. It is so accessible. The frog population seems to be doing very well. Go around dusk and the sound is just intense.

This is a wonderful area to wander and be surrounded by nature. If you visit different times of the year, you will see the area flooded in the winter, many times with geese who have migrated from other states, and in the summer you will see and hear birds and other wildlife. There are periodic organized walks during the day... More

Paradise for nature watching. Well done handicap accessible viewing deck and interpretive center. Miles and miles of walking trails as well. Lots of birdlife. The interpretative center is incredibly well done; lots of interesting pieces for children and adults.
