Definitely worth the time and would highly recommend anyone to stop in. A beautiful boardwalk through a forested area! Saw moose, elk, snowy owl, great horned owls and bald eagles on our visit.

Beautiful and lots of interesting signage about each animal. Good for all ages! Next time I will bring my binoculars for a closer look at these beautiful animals
