Activity Overview

Mendon Ponds Park is a huge 2,500 acre area filled with woodlands, ponds, and wetlands in Monroe County, New York. It's around an hour and a half east from Buffalo, NY, and 25 minutes south from downtown Rochester NY. Within the park is Wild Wings, a non profit organization founded in fall 1995, aimed to treat injured birds or be a sanctuary for those which cannot be released back in the wild. Wild Wings also acts as an education center against the illegal wildlife trade and about these majestic creatures.

Things to Do

There are plenty to do in this massive park compound:

  • Wild Wings - see the birds that were rescued. Wild Wings also has a park where your family can go bird watching. Inside the Mendon Ponds Nature Center, you may also see some exhibits that Wild Wings had prsented. You may also attend some of their education programs like birds of prey demonstrations. You can also shop at the store, donate, or adopt a bird.
  • Mendon Ponds Park - plenty to do! You can walk or hike the trails, go biking, hop on a kayak or canoe, go fishing, have a picnic, or just enjoy a nice day out with the family. You may find some wild animals too, like deer and of course, birds. The park is spacious enough not to feel so crowded.

Mendon Rounds Park Insider Tips

  • Wild Wings only operates from 10AM-2PM, however, may be closed when there are special private functions. Some birds may also be out of their outside cages if the temperatures are a bit too cold (ie winter). Do note that it is not a guarantee to see all the birds when you visit.
  • Bring some seeds if you want chickadees (small birds) to eat them out of your palms. They won't bite!
