Great place for peace and tranquility. Sit and rock in a rocking chair under a thatched hut. Enjoy the birds and wildlife.

Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to walk through the entire preserve. Bring your camera, and sunblock! This is a beautiful area, and it is educational for children. This is also free, which is nice!

This would be considered a pristine wetland area. The staff and volunteers are very friendly! I enjoyed a canoe trip. We will go back without a doubt!
