Take the short walk to Wander Lake to check out some more bird life but be sure to bring the mosquito repellant!

We really enjoyed Wedgewood. This is a privately developed and owned refuge. The owner deserves a lot of credit for the investment. Nice place for a walk. Very scenic. Good photo opportunities.

Only 4 years old so the paths are very good and the information boards excellent. About 1 mile walk around Wander Lake with signs of beaver activity but no beavers, or much other wildlife to be fair. Pleasant walk though with good scenery and places to sit.

Nice trails around a small lake, lots of wildflowers and such. We were told active beavers were on the lake, we didn't see any. Still a nice walk!

What a lovely and serene walk. I didn't really see a lot of wildlife and I walked here about 10 times, but the scenery is nice and the signs are very interesting and informative.
