Visitor's center and nearby outdoor enclosures with eagles, owls, hawks, etc. were worth the unexpected side trip. Cold temperatures and my friend's dislike of the cold kept us from exploring the nature trails. These promised a good nature experience in warmer conditions. All the birds in the enclosures seemed to be in perfect health, alert and responsive to our presence.... More

This is another great thing to do in Green Bay. Free to get in, free parking, and lots of animals to see. There is a nice waterfall from spring to fall, and some paths through woods and ponds.

What can I say, I grew up with this place. The wildlife sanctuary is small but offers a lot to do both inside and out. There is a zoo, a bird sanctuary as well as walking areas and indoor exhibits. The most entertaining time to go is in fall when the ducks and geese are super hungry... They surround you... More

This area is a wonderful place to enjoy the wonders of nature without having to pay a fee. The waterfalls, trails, wild ducks, geese, swans, plus caged live birds of all kinds, made a few hours pass quickly. Another area featured captive wild animals native to our part of Wisconsin plus an indoor area for hands on learning. Ideal area... More

Beautiful setting, both indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy. Can purchase 'food' to feed the geese, which is always entertaining! Lots of 'hands on' exploration opportunities inside for the little ones. Nice place to spend the day. Bay Beach amusement park is across the road, also very family friendly and fun for kids of all ages. Do not think there... More

This is one of my favorite (free!) attractions to take my family. Beautiful trails and local wildlife. If you get there very early or late in the day, the wolves are out. And if you howl, sometimes they will walk right up to the fence and howl back. You can feed the deer, they have a large enclosure and will... More

The kids love to come here and see all the animals. It is such an interesting place. My grandson loves the peregrine falcon. Be sure to stop if you are at Bay Beach Amusement Park. You will not be disappointed.

This is a great place to take a leisurely walk on the weekend. Lovely ponds provide opportunities for feeding the ducks. Just having fun for the children. Seeing wild critters in a nice environment.
