This property is amazing to visit and educational for all. It has facilities offered to make it a great spot for group event/weddings. The grounds are beautiful with a running river in the back property and a trail that offers an amazing view of nature.

We learned a great deal about the poor Atlantic Salmon. We definitely would suggest the guide as we learned more with her information than just looking at the displays.
