  • Very nice place for bird watching. The gentleman at reception familiar birds of the site and can be useful if you need assistance. The site is beautiful, very well maintained. A lot of swamp with a lot of water birds. One can easily spend several hours. Very easy to walk. Ideal for photography. It's free.

  • Highly recommend as a place to go to see some interesting birds just a short drive away from Vegas. The people at the front were very helpful about this place and other places we might like to visit a...  more »

  • We visited this place right before her flight because of its proximity to the airport. The wildlife is there but under no circumstances would I recommend anyone come here. The area and community is unsafe and toxic. We were only there for an hour and in that timeframe we had our luggage stolen from the trunk of our vehicle (Note: this area is fairly remote so there were maybe 10 people there at all times, even less during the time we went). When we found out our luggage (precious, sentimental items were in there as well as valuables) was stolen we immediately brought it up to the staff and local law enforcement. Both groups were extremely unresponsive, not helpful, and deflective. Even after stressing the importance of what was stolen and showing local law enforcement what Google tracking indicated directionally what happened (our computer was inside our luggage), we were brushed off. Again. Please please please only visit this place with nothing of value on you in person, and expect no help from locals. In general I would avoid this place as the risks are not worth it.
  • The COOLEST!!! BEST!!! place to visit for anyone with a birding interest or even a nature interest. The place is huge! 9 ponds! Some of the most beautiful water fowl I have ever seen. March is the time to go, early spring! Migratory season! Must hit! Le Conte's Thrasher, Ross's geese, cinnamon teal, avocet, and 5 hummingbird species was my top favorites, but I could spend a week here everyday from open to close. Good binoculars will get you a lot, but a good scope is HIGHLY recommended! Early morning birding is best, but even afternoon sunshine brings dozens of species daily. I would assume after April it will be too hot to get the insane amount of water fowl we got, but I would assume a lot of really cool stuff is still there, and it's beautiful and well ran. The hours will fly here!
  • Go as earlier as possible because they close at 2pm. The view is awesome. If practising photography you must go. Take lots of water and buy something to contribute. Out is free to go inside.
  • Great place for family. Easy quiet walking paths and the staff was great. Don't forget to ask for the bird mobile!
  • Fun preserve in the middle of the city. Nice short educational presentation before you go outside.
