This 725-ac wildlife preserve, located in the 3000-ac Jackson Bottom floodplain of the Tualatin River, is valuable habitat for both migratory and nesting birds. The Preserve is a complex of wet meadows, open marshes, scrub-shrub, mudflat, riparian corridor, upland ash, and Douglas-fir woods. Fall migration brings thousands of wintering waterfowl, including Tundra Swan, Northern Shoveler, and Northern Pintail. The Preserve is home to nesting Bald Eagle, and a Great Blue Heron rookery with over 20 nests. 15 species of shorebirds have been found in migration. The 4.5 miles of trail with five viewing shelters give access to the south end of the Preserve, while protecting sensitive habitat. The Preserve offers 'Lunch with the Birds' every Wednesday at 12pm; binoculars and scopes are available.<\/p>\r\n
