Koll Center Wetlands Park

A family of river otters hunt in this wetland regularly in the early morning hours, catching carp. Waterfowl can be seen in abundance year round. In winter look for Green-winged Teal, Common Merganser, Northern Shoveler, Great Blue Heron and Great Egret. Belted Kingfisher are frequent. In spring and summer watch for Green Heron, and watch Cliff, Barn, Violet-green and Tree Swallows feeding over the wetlands.
