Lovely grounds and trails. Kids will like the raptors on display. The ponds with their expanses of lily pads are beautiful on a summer evening.

There are nice trails to walk on. There are some trails you can bring your dog on. They have falcons, vultures, owls, bald eagle on display. The people working there were very helpful. It was worth the trip.

The museum is a little out of date, but the trails and knowledge available make this an amazing place. Don't pass up the chance to walk around this location, but make sure that you bring your cameras and bug spray.
