Experience the wetlands from elevated walkways and paved marked trails that take you to the water's edge. There's also a nice outdoor sensory exhibit, and a small but well-stocked indoor learning center. Surprisingly under-used facility, only 4 years old.

Come here almost weekly to walk the dog. Great trails. Be careful though of rattlesnakes. Saw/heard one on the trail so stayed clear. Can see lots of birds here. Definitely recommend a visit.

Birding during the spring migration and this proved to be a wonderful site. Well designed and maintained with great volunteer staff. As my sister said, "a very birdie place".

I grew up just 1,500 yards from this place and it has changed so much throughout the years. The biggest change has been the protected walkways around the wetlands. It makes for a peaceful, educational walk among nature
