Flora and fauna
The setting is unlikely, near an industrial area of the state-owned Petrotrin oil refinery, with flames spouting from flare stacks in the sky. However, in this seemingly inhospitable clime, wildfowl flourish amid such luxuriant vegetation as crape myrtle, flamboyant soursop, mango trees, and even black sage bushes said to be good for high blood pressure.
Monday to Friday from 8 am to 5 pm, and Saturday and Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. You can only visit and see the grounds by appointment. Admission is $5, which includes a guided tour. Call 658-4200 to make a booking.
