I’ve been there twice now and it is a beautiful BEAUTIFUL place. I first went with my environmental science lab class and we got a tour of the marshland. Our guide could talk with a passion about the place forever and the passion was contagious. I really suggest booking a tour. The guy is also hilarious. It’s a must see place and a must-go trip.
Jug Bay has an enormous amount of wildlife to see. On my two trips I’ve seen lots of osprey, bald eagles, herons, sand pipers, snipes, a coot, turtles, muskrats, snakes, laughing gulls, and red winged black birds. Geese too unfortunately. If you go in the fall, Jug Bay is a hot spot for migratory birds.
Here is their website: http://www.jugbay.org/
They have Osprey nests with webcams on them which you can watch live on the website.
Here are some pictures from the trip.
That little bird shaped speck is an osprey. There are a lot of Osprey there.
there were a lot of little tadpoles swimming right there. You can kind of see a swirming mass of little brown things.

These are pictures from my second trip to Jug Bay. Some friends and guests went kayaking and canoeing there.
