Used to walk here as a child and fish the lagoon for bullheads. It has been expanded since I left Green Bay in 1973 to join the Navy. A great wildlife preserve and great place for a family picnic and right across from Bay Beach!

The Bay Beach Wildlife Santuary is a wonderful place for your family to visit. The kids will love the animals, especially in winter when the ducks eat corn from your hands. Fun for the whole family!

Went to sanctuary after spending most of the day at Bay Beach. Great place to unwind and enjoy nature. All the kids loved it as much as Bay Beach. Talked about it for days after.

Very scenic. Not too much parking. Vast. You must be in the mood to walk a lot. Great picture taking! Lots of geese!!!!!!!! But ticks might be here so dress appropriately.

This provides a great place for visitors to get up close and personal with a variety of birds, and other animals. Close up views of cougars and wolves were very neat. The geese with goslings was adorable to see walking around the area. But watch...More
