Been a friend of the I have been going to the sanctuary forever. It has always been a wonderful commune with nature. Nice animal habitats and displays and beautiful landscaping around waterfall and lagoons. Education center is used for a number of things including an awesome Yoga class.

This place is a treasure to visit! I was amazed at the beauty and enjoyed all of the hiking trails, exhibit areas, and wildlife. The trails are all paved and there are plenty of benches for resting or enjoying the view. Fun to feed the ducks and geese with the $1 bags of corn sold on the grounds. The sanctuary... More

When you have a toddler, free, educational and outside is the trifecta of goodness. That is what the sanctuary is. Not only is this place great for learning about the animals that are just outside our door, it's also a place for the animals to heal after injury or live after being imprinted by humans. This place is good and... More

What a gorgeous and impressive place! I so appreciated the beauty of the hiking trail, the many opportunities for my kids to interact with the birds, and the ability to visualize so much wildlife. A great place to give kids (and adults!) an appreciation for nature and the fragility of the balance of nature. I believe it's a great way... More

Had a great time at this site. It was a rainy day but the kids still had fun seeing the animals and feeding the ducks.

The sanctuary has many different things to do but I mostly hike on one of the four different trails. While on the trails you may come in contact with different wild life. I saw crane and peacocks. Otherwise they have many different animals in exhibits to see. Cool free this to do in Green Bay Area.

I hope you enjoy birds - and lots of them. The geese and ducks roam free and there are various hawks, owls, and eagles to gaze at as well. Corn is available for purchase at a great price of just $1.00. Make sure you check out the indoor exhibits as well. Great Experience!

The Wildlife Sanctuary has grown exponentially better since I moved here in 1979! Beautifully landscaped areas include walkways (packed dirt, paved & wooden) through wooded areas and even a bridge over a small lake. We enjoy going the most in the spring and fall when the geese are hungriest and enjoy the corn kernels we feed them (purchased at Sancturary).... More
