Unique And Neat

Definitely a unique view. Pretty and family friendly

Excellent

GPS coordinates would help pinpoint the entrance. Google maps location was off by half a mile.

Great for bird watching!

No matter what season I come to this beautiful preserve, there are always different species of birds to observe. Hawks, herons, owls, ducks, and pelicans—all can be seen along the boardwalk or from the observation tower. Great for all ages, skill levels, and seasons.
