In another building, you can see birds of... More

The center is located just a couple of miles from where I-89 and I-93 intersect. You start at a headquarters building that features a small gift shop and educational exhibits, including several live turtles. Then you can hike on a selection of nature trails through forest, grassland, and pond environments. It's a great break from more cultural attractions.

It is the kind of place for one to tune down anxiety , in other words...peace.There are many venues to explore and trails galore.The wildlife sanctuary is certainly an eye opening experience,a first for me and I shall return, really worth the easy effort to find.

Free (they take donations) place to see several raptors that have been rehabilitated and cannot be released including a peregrine falcon and a bald eagle. There are several informational areas inside the building and some live animals to view. The trails on the property are pleasant and provide an easy walk for little kids.
