(0.6 mile round trip)
Situated just inches above the wetland, our boardwalk offers easy access to the flora and fauna that are just seconds away from the center. Built as concentric “rings,” the boardwalk offers just under one mile of travel (for out and back) if you hit every section. It was designed for single file/individual traffic. The width allows less interference from large groupings for a more mindful journey. The boardwalk is accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.

Walk to the Eagles
(1.5 miles round trip)
The trail to our bald eagles’ nest takes you as close as federal regulations allow. You will see signs on the trail asking you not to approach any closer. All visitors must adhere to these restrictions.
