A wonderful free zoo. Lots of animals to see and trails to hike. Especially enjoyed feeding the birds. All the ducks & geese swarm when they see you have corn.

The wild life refuge was very cool and a hit amoung out boys. We have boys age 3, 8 and 11. Only complaint would be that there is a lot of goose poop so watch your step. It Shou be something you should expect.

I enjoyed my time here. I am usually saddened by seeing animals in cages however seeing how well the animals were taken care of and knowing they would not be able to survive in the wild. The workers were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Went because of recommendation on TripAdvisor but a very small simple wildlife center. Ok for little kids.
