Great place to let kids run, play and explore nature! The animals on exhibit always look cared for. There is bags of corn available for $1 that you can get to feed the ducks and geese which is fun for little ones. The geese can get a bit agressive, but a great place to get outside and play

Took the grandsons here to see fall foliage and the kid friendly museum. Plenty indoors for the kids to see and a great walking trail.

Like a Zoo & Botanical garden in 1 place. Lots of trails to explore. I could use more signage on directions. Great place to spend time outdoors and learn for adults and kids. Upclose to nature!

We loved coming here due to the fact that it was a wildlife sanctuary. The grounds were beautiful. All of the animals looked like they were getting very well kept. Which was really nice. All of the animals were pretty active for us, but it was a nice day out (not super hot.) It was so fun to feed all... More

I take my son here several times a month because he loves to feed all the geese and ducks that call this place home. Also has a free small zoo with otters, deer, a coyote, wolves and a few other small animals, but again its free. Just a word of advise, they charge $1.00 for a tiny bag of corn... More

Very well maintained and very informative from the indoor exhibits to the outdoor trails and wild life. A must see attraction. Easy to get to and lots of free parking, even for campers & RV's. Great picnic areas, some with shelters, and it's all free to the general public.

This sanctuary does not change admission, but accepts donations. There is an area with various animals that have been injured or imprinted with humans and can't survive in the wild. There is also a large area with ponds and many types of water fowl live here. There are places where you can buy a bag of corn and feed the... More

If you are anywhere near Green Bay, and especially if children are with you, you will not regret stopping by this sanctuary. I'm always impressed with the quality of the facilities and the amount of animals free admission gets you. The geese can be a little aggressive when you're throwing out corn. And of course, there is goose and duck... More
