@rundocuri- I have been to the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary several times, and I found the wildlife to be very beautiful. There are a lot of waterfowl to observe, but the best time of year for you and your friends to travel there depends on what you are hoping to see.

In the spring months, you can witness the waterfowl and their young, which is always heartwarming to watch. In late summer and early fall, the waterfowl have their full feathers, and are very beautiful. Plus, the leaves are beginning to turn into their fall colors, and the scenery at the sanctuary is peaceful and pretty during this time of year.

My friends and I are avid bird watchers, and love to travel to new areas to observe indigenous water fowl. I'm wondering if the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary is a good place for us to visit to pursue our hobby. Does anyone have some advice for us about this Green Bay attraction?

I skied at the Triangle Sports Area in Green Bay, Wisconsin several years ago with my entire family. We all had a great time, and were especially happy to find that the novice skiers and the kids in the group had plenty of easy hills to enjoy the outdoor winter fun.
