See the dazzling spectacle of nesting herons, egrets and cormorants! Maybe even see one of our resident bald eagles. The preserve has controlled access during nesting season to minimize disturbances to nesting birds, so the only way to view these amazing creatures at Lake Renwick 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. Bringing your own binoculars or spotting scope is recommended. Park in the Renwick Road lot, and please do not bring dogs or bicycles because they are not permitted in the nature preserve. The viewing platform is accessible via a crushed limestone trail over uneven terrain.
