Comments:
I had wrongly assumed that the boardwalk systems of the convention center and the Birding & Nature Center were connected. They aren't. They actually have parallel tracks, right next to each other, at one point. Seems kind of silly to me, but when one charges admission and the other doesn't... (The convention center area is free.)
