  • Wonderful visitor center! They have two really good movies (on their work and bears), very nice interactive displays and daily guided walks. The staff was really helpful and informative. We really enjoyed our visit here. Highly recommend a stop here.
  • The visit was great and the volunteers were very helpful. They have set times that a couple of volunteers go out to the preserve with binoculars and discuss the wildlife that are there.
