My two boys (5 and 2) spent two hours here last October and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. There was plenty to see - check out the website for all of the animals. Wagons can be cheaply rented from the front desk which was ideal for my 2 year old who would have struggled to walk the whole way. I particularly liked the diversity of the refuge and the boardwalk out into the everglades. Baby crocs are kept in the museum shop in the main building. My boys liked seeing the babies up close. Overall, a great visit for any family with kids. We will certainly visit again on our return to Savannah next year.

I love the exhibits because they provide all sorts of information on what is found in the area. The movie is informative. Wildlife drive can take any where from 45 minutes to several hours. Some birds were seen, but I could not identify them. Most of the birds were at the beginning of the drive.

Very professional staff in visitors center with a lot of great information to pass on. Take the four mile dirt road around the preserve and take in all nature provides you. Saw three large alligators sunning themselves as well, as hundreds of birds of varying species. Beautiful groves of mossy live oak canopied lanes.
Very pleasant couple of hours for free. A donation is appreciated to keep up the preservation of this area and we were more then happy to help with these volunteers efforts.

Even though it's Winter, there is a lot to enjoy here. The short drive taken at a slow pace lets one take it all in. With less folage visibility is great...

The visitor center here is a nature lovers paradise appealing to children and adults. The video is educational as are all of the displays. A 4 mile ride through the preserve will display various wildlife at different seasons. Check their website for special events and plan your visit for a special treat.
