is rare place where your entry fee is free. Please make a donation to get in as that's what keeps it going. It's great for all ages. They have great animal exhibits and rehabilitation program. Be sure to buy a bag of corn and feed the geese. Kids just love that. They have a nice area to bring a picnic... More

The Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary is enormous with many paths that you can safely hike around on, and includes a small wildlife portion for free that functions as a miniature zoo. If you genuinely enjoy the outdoors, I would consider this stop. The indoor buildings have small attractions for children and you can walk out on the water to feed... More

Visitor's center and nearby outdoor enclosures with eagles, owls, hawks, etc. were worth the unexpected side trip. Cold temperatures and my friend's dislike of the cold kept us from exploring the nature trails. These promised a good nature experience in warmer conditions. All the birds in the enclosures seemed to be in perfect health, alert and responsive to our presence.... More

This is another great thing to do in Green Bay. Free to get in, free parking, and lots of animals to see. There is a nice waterfall from spring to fall, and some paths through woods and ponds.

What can I say, I grew up with this place. The wildlife sanctuary is small but offers a lot to do both inside and out. There is a zoo, a bird sanctuary as well as walking areas and indoor exhibits. The most entertaining time to go is in fall when the ducks and geese are super hungry... They surround you... More

This area is a wonderful place to enjoy the wonders of nature without having to pay a fee. The waterfalls, trails, wild ducks, geese, swans, plus caged live birds of all kinds, made a few hours pass quickly. Another area featured captive wild animals native to our part of Wisconsin plus an indoor area for hands on learning. Ideal area... More
