We got here on a Sunday when the Visitor Center was closed, but we were able to pick up a couple of brochures and drive through the Bird Sanctuary. There weren't as many birds as I had hoped for although we did see several white...More
The staff at the visitor's center was helpful. However, it is about a 12 mile drive from the visitor's center to the refuge. With any wildlife refuge, visitor's are at the mercy of the wildlife and unfortunately I didn't see much. Much of the refuge...More
