“Good bird watching opportunities.”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Very friendly ladies in the center. They coached us about where to go first. The film was good and educational. Posters show the birds common in the surrounding nature area. Enjoy an ice cream outside.
There are also plenty of big, fat fish you can see from the walkway.
Go early in the morning or late afternoon to escape the summer heat.

“Unique View of the Island”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This nature center is very peaceful and the staff friendly. If you venture to the top of the center you literally can see much of the Island. Would go again.
