We are Open and Accessible!

There is no longer a detour to get to World Bird Sanctuary, however, smart phone GPS units have not yet been updated to the new road changes to get to our site from the intersections of 141 and 44. The WAZE app is the only one that we know of that will bring you correctly in through all the new road/exit changes.
