Love visiting this sanctuary, made possible by the Wolfson family years ago. This is the original site of Beaverlake Club House. You may not walk your dog in this area or around the lake without paying a sizeable fee..

In addition to a hard packed dirt trail circling Beaver Lake, the Bird Sanctuary has very nice decking and boardwalks through the Sanctuary. The local Audubon bird club is always improving this area.

Though smallish, it is a pleasant place to take a walk and though it is near a road, it still feels like the countryside.

Walked the bird sanctuary trail, it is a little small but there is a lot to take in and read. It's a beautiful area if you want to take a picnic. Make sure to take a blanket and bug spray.
