The driveway to the sanctuary is off of Hedgewood Drive, about .25 mile out State Street from the center of Gallipolis

 

Over 60 acres set aside for wetland bird and wildlife species while serving as a living, learning laboratory for students. A variety of wetland vegetation includes American sycamore, silver maple, cottonwood, arrowhead, buttonbush, and bullrushes. It is home to Canadian geese, mallard ducks, great blue herons and egrets. Wetland mammals abound, including beavers, minks, muskrats, and white-tailed deer. Several types of turtles can be seen sunning on logs along the creek on warm summer days. The sanctuary is open year-round for walk-in use during daylight hours. A parking lot is available for group use and may be opened for access by contacting the O.O. McIntyre Park District.
