I've heard of it. Thanks for the reminder that it seems a worthwhile eastern NC destination.

Have been to it twice. Last time was 2-3 months ago. I took a bunch of pictures this time. We have to take the tour, riding the golf cart, because I can't walk it anymore. It's a fun place.

I have heard of it, and its website gives a great deal of info. I might be biased, but I am impressed that the owner, or boss, is English.

I attended a presentation that the founder's son gave at a local Bird Club meeting. Fascinating history on the founder, Mike Lubbock. He is not just British, he was once the overseer for the Queen's Waterfowl at Buckingham Palace. He was the first to get the geese to breed at the Palace.
