The grounds look great, the place is well maintained, it is just at edge of the city, but a really nice taste of nature. The people here know their stuff and really care about the animals. The building is nice and a good learning experience....More

Went over on a Sunday afternoon. Take the kids ! Take in all different trails to see the rescue wildlife animals from around the state. It will take you a good hour to good thru.

We stopped after a trip to Bay Beach Ammusent Park and the 7 and 8 year olds enjoyed the displays and the hands on things. Went to visit the waterfall and fed the ducks. Wish we had more time. Lots to see and do.
