A beautiful green oasis up in North Asheville the Beaver Lake Bird Sanctuary is a great place for a stroll or birding expedition. It about 10 acre large and is managed and run by The Elisha Mitchell Audubon Society, a chapter of National Audubon. There are even guided walks on the first Saturday of each month from October to March. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and interactive. You can even have a picnic here. The sanctuary is quiet retreat from bustling city and should not be missed.

Beaver Lake Bird Sanctuary Reviews & Ratings
I loved this place because I get to see the turtles. I love turtles! I love to feed them fresh fruit and leafy greens. Meal worms and specialty river shrimp from pet store. But please don't feed them Bread. It isn't good for them. I will miss them when they hibernate.
This is one of my favorite places in the whole city. Excellent place to go for a walk to clear one's head. I've gotten to see some really cool birds here, and it's so great that the area will remain protected habitat for them. They need it so badly. I really appreciate the fact that the public can come and go freely, and that there are rules against running so as to not disturb wildlife.
Cool little place. Nice short easy walk. Cold use a little maintenance on the walking path. Considering it was free, no complaints. Wish there were more birds.
Beautiful and quiet spot that's perfect for a leisurely walk. Note that this is a bird sanctuary and not some kind of zoo or exhibit, so don't expect to see a bunch of birds on any given visit (some reviews mention not seeing many birds). It's a wild forest area, and you'll hear the birds even if you don't see them!
Nice place for a walk. Bird sanctuary has nice walkway and benches to rest and look around.
