Excellent location to view wildlife, especially the birdlife in the spring. The boardwalk winds through the reeds allowing close up viewing of both the reeds and open water. Plenty of activity in both.

They have activities during the year that are very informative. They have days where they count birds and you can ask them questions and look through their binoculars. Plus its a beautiful, peaceful view and a nice walk/bike ride to get there.
