Great way to enjoy the summer and learn about important wildlife and conservation. You can enjoy nature, see animals, and feed ducks and geese.

The Bay Beach Wildlife Santuary is a wonderful place for your family to visit. The kids will love the animals, especially in winter when the ducks eat corn from your hands. Fun for the whole family!

Went to sanctuary after spending most of the day at Bay Beach. Great place to unwind and enjoy nature. All the kids loved it as much as Bay Beach. Talked about it for days after.

Very scenic. Not too much parking. Vast. You must be in the mood to walk a lot. Great picture taking! Lots of geese!!!!!!!! But ticks might be here so dress appropriately.
