What can I say, I grew up with this place. The wildlife sanctuary is small but offers a lot to do both inside and out. There is a zoo, a bird sanctuary as well as walking areas and indoor exhibits. The most entertaining time to go is in fall when the ducks and geese are super hungry... They surround you... More

This area is a wonderful place to enjoy the wonders of nature without having to pay a fee. The waterfalls, trails, wild ducks, geese, swans, plus caged live birds of all kinds, made a few hours pass quickly. Another area featured captive wild animals native to our part of Wisconsin plus an indoor area for hands on learning. Ideal area... More

Beautiful setting, both indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy. Can purchase 'food' to feed the geese, which is always entertaining! Lots of 'hands on' exploration opportunities inside for the little ones. Nice place to spend the day. Bay Beach amusement park is across the road, also very family friendly and fun for kids of all ages. Do not think there... More

This is one of my favorite (free!) attractions to take my family. Beautiful trails and local wildlife. If you get there very early or late in the day, the wolves are out. And if you howl, sometimes they will walk right up to the fence and howl back. You can feed the deer, they have a large enclosure and will... More

The kids love to come here and see all the animals. It is such an interesting place. My grandson loves the peregrine falcon. Be sure to stop if you are at Bay Beach Amusement Park. You will not be disappointed.

This is a great place to take a leisurely walk on the weekend. Lovely ponds provide opportunities for feeding the ducks. Just having fun for the children. Seeing wild critters in a nice environment.

Relaxing place to take the family to explore and learn. Interesting and educational for all ages. Bay Beach Amusement Park and Kastle Karts are right across the street.

It was a great experience. The way the staff cares about animals and guests is awesome. They're very knowledgeable and you can tell they truly care about the environment.

Enjoyed this very, very much. Spent several hours there. The wildlife is very well cared for and each of them has its own story, that is explained very well. Especially enjoyed the wolves, cougar and feeding the deer. Will definitely be back with our grandkids.

What a wonderful two hours spent here. We are outdoor and animal lovers, and the Bay Beach Sanctuary did not disappoint. We wandered through the property and saw most of the animals. What a great place...and it's FREE! We bought something in the gift shop to support them. Feeding the ducks and the deer was a huge highlight for us.... More
