Looking for something to do with the kids? The Wildlife Sanctuary is a free attraction. It offers a nature center with fun facts and a cool slide. It also has picnic tables inside (lower level) and outside so bring you picnic lunch. The outside trails lead you past many cool animals. The sanctuary helps injured animals heal before they are...

This was a spur of the moment stop on our Green Bay trip and it was worth it. This was one of the cool things we were able to do while on our vacation and I would recommend it for anyone.

Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary is a great place for kids. Feed the ducks, see Wisconsin wildlife including timber wolves. Across the road is the Bay Beach Amusement Park with inexpensive rides including the Zippin Pippin brought to Green Bay from Memphis. It was Elvis Presley's favorite roller coaster.

I think these are the same ducks I fed corn in 1950. But then the wildlife was just these birds and a few sorry animals in wood and wire cages. Now there is a wonderful rehab program and aviary.

All cities should have placed like this that is free for any families to go to. I think it's remarkable that green bay is able to keep this place for all to visit. The only thing they charge for is the $1 for corn to feed the hundred of geese and ducks which the kids will love. Heck I like... More

Not a lot to this place, though that could have been in part because I went at a slow time of day when the weather wasn't that great. The staff is super friendly though and let me take pictures and talk to 'Peaches' (their adopted pet cockatoo). I also found the open cage exhibit in the Observation Building fascinating since...

This a free treat! Our kids are 5 and 1. They absolutely loved it!!! Lots of information, things for kids to play in, and plenty of wildlife to see like wolves, bobcat, cougar, deer, and birds.
