The staff there is AMAZING!!! The facilities are AMAZING!!! The only reason I didn't give it the 5th star is because of the map and the trail markers...a couple of markers are confusing, aren't there, and the map is hard to follow. Easy fix, use Google Maps, all of the trails are laid out on it. I'll definitely be back, I can't wait to see it once the leaves have fallen.
We joined a guided birdwatching group this morning (05/15/2019). The hiking paths were full of Spring flowers and the air was filled with birdsong. It was a fun, informative and smart bunch of people. Our leaders were skilled and patient. We heard or saw about 10 different species. The gift shop is a treat with many cool things for birders and gardeners. We'll be back.
