The Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary is located in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It is a 700 acre urban wildlife refuge. The Sanctuary is open to the public year round and is a great place to take your kids. Not only is it free, it is a ton of fun too! It was started in 1935 as a waterfowl rehabilitation site. It continues to receive over 3,000 injured, orphaned, and sick animals each year. Their goal is to return as many animals back into the wild as possible.
There is a three story building there called Nature Education Center. There are hands on animal pods, discovery rooms, and even an estuary room. As you can see from a few of the pictures below, my kids truly enjoyed it!
The adults even got involved:
The Observation/Rehabilitation building has a conservation wing, live prey and waterfowl exhibits, animal nursery viewing, wildlife rehabilitation area, and shelled corn for sale to feed the waterfowl. My kids love feeding the waterfowl. At 50 cents a bag, you can’t go wrong!
If you are in the Green Bay Wisconsin area, this is a great place to take your children. Besides the cost of the corn to feed the waterfowl, it is free. There are 6.5 miles of trails you can hike besides the two buildings to check out. You can picnic there too. It is a great place to check out!
