See the dazzling spectacle of nesting herons, egrets and cormorants! Maybe even see one of our resident bald eagles. Because the preserve has controlled access during nesting season to minimize disturbances to nesting birds, the only way to view these amazing creatures during this time of year is to attend a viewing program. Volunteers and staff will be at the viewing platform and visitor center to answer questions. Spotting scopes and a limited number of loaner binoculars are available for use. Bringing your own binoculars or spotting scope is recommended. Park in the Renwick Road lot, and please do not bring dogs or bicycles as they are not permitted in the nature preserve. The viewing platform is accessible via a crushed limestone trail over uneven terrain.
