Reviewed 10 November 2013

Loved hanging at the visitors center with their bird viewing station with pond. Used loaner binocs, and watched species of ducks I'd never 'met' before (mergansers), watched a red tail hawk survey his kingdom, and photographed waxwings. Awesome time!

Well worth a morning guiding birding walk, and setting aside time to hang out in the woods with some good binoculars. They have loaners (good ones!) at the Center. The work the lab does is wonderful (and important) as well. My husband and two sons (early 20's, one attending Cornell grad school) joined me on the trip...all loved it!

a great place for birders of all ages, in any weather. You can sit comfortably inside and watch birds at feeders on or a pond, or walk secluded trails. a great destination for anyone interested in nature.

Wonderful hiking area on flat land for those of us who just want a nice walk and watch the birds. Artwork in the building is awesome.
