On our trip we saw no birds. The only wildlife we saw was a squirrel (although he did have attitude), dragonflies, and mosquitoes. That said, the walk was really nice with lots of plants and we did enjoy ourselves.

A very relaxing and pleasurable visit. Take binoculars and good walking shoes. Maybe a picnic basket. You really could spend all day there.

There are busses that go around Fairbanks. I don't remember the color of the bus (think it may be the blue line) but if you ask around, folks are very kind and willing to help. If you go to the Morris Thompson Cultural... More
