The Ostego Bay Foundation offers a wonderful educational opportunity for both children and adults. Besides that it is just fun! Everyone that I have come across, both staff members and volunteers, are dedicated, knowledgeable and totally involved. I recommend Ostego Bay Foundation without reservation.

This place is filled with historical goodies and is in a great culturally rich area which helps envision the mission of Ostego Bay better. They have a live touch tank filled with critters that are begging to be touched and it's always fun to see the turtles poking their heads out.
