We found this almost by accident and so glad we stopped. We were there on a chilly blustery day but the sanctuary is beautiful, lots of water, marshland, wildlife. We hiked the 1.4 mile loop and then drove the 7 mile scenic drive with several stops. Allow a couple of hours if you can. The staff at the nature center were very knowledgable and friendly.

Spectacularly beautiful! Lots of swans, loons, and cedar waxwings when we visited in August. We might have even saw a wood duck! WOW! This was one of the most terrific places I've ever been to!

All we saw were birds, but my granddaughter is a bird enthusiast so it was perfect! Swans, Loons, things she had never seen before.

Take your time on the marshland tour or to really experience Seney hike the backcountry. You are almost 100% guaranteed to see wildlife.

This is a beautiful tranquil place to observe nature in abundance. There are many birds and I see different things every time I visit. The 7 mile drive allows you to go at your own pace and allow others to pass you if they choose. There is a very nice visitor center with helpful volunteers. The staff is also very helpful and will answer and questions you have. This is a great place to take photos or just enjoy the views. Definite must for nature lovers.
