Love visiting this place, lots of walking trails, pretty water installations, and plenty of wildlife. There are two separate buildings where animals can be viewed, in one there are otters, fox, bobcat, wolves, etc. and in the other are smaller reptiles, bats, and birds. Then...More

We visited on a Saturday morning with an almost 6-year old and a 20-month old. Both kids loved it - my older child was asking to go back the next day. It’s free, and opens at 8am, which is awesome when you have early risers...More

We really enjoyed our walk around the sanctuary. Plenty of animals to see and feed. It you wanna feed the animals its $1. Totally worth it to get up close to the animals.
