Great place to educate your kids as well as yourself. This is a rescue operation for birds in the area usually damaged by our human presence in their environment. This place does a great job caring for these animals and need our help.

We stumbled upon this bird sanctuary by accident. We really enjoyed walking thru. It was feeding time and that was cool. It is a small place but really interesting. From what I understand they are funded 100% by donations. Definitely worth checking out.

Would be a bit of a long walk. Take the trolley that runs all day long, or nice long walk on the beach. Easy access from the beach. Well worth the visit!
