We biked here from the Chappy Ferry. Not too bad of a ride. Small donation given as n entrance fee. Little aquariums with fish and reptiles plus a few small activities inside. Took the shortest trail by the pond- saw some fish and a swan,...More

Attended the creature feature and it was wonderful. Similar to a story time but interactive. For $9 you get a story about the featured animal, learn facts, interaction with the animal, craft and song. Highly recommend.

Great walking trails take you to the salt water inlet with abundant crabs, clams, shrimp and horseshoe crabs. Great views of the salt marshes. Saw 3 deer on the walk.
