Cornell Lab of Ornithology reviews
The Lab is closed but the trails at Sapsucker Woods are open. Easy trails, all very well maintained. You could bring children but the walks might be too long for those under 7-8 years old. In August..... more »
We didn’t walk far because the day before had torrential rains so most of it was muddy, dark day and uncomfortable with so many bugs attacking..on a nice day, I’m sure it is great! more »
Nice park with lots of hiking trails and plenty of benches. Wonderful museum and very interesting. Best of all its free.
Fantastic museum with interactive displays and activities. Beautiful walks around the territory
