Went at the height of summer. Very hot indeed. Still, managed a walk round most of the site and saw great birds, including three species of hummingbird and my first ever Greater Roadrunner outside a cartoon. A really well kept and managed site. Super friendly welcome from the knowlegeable staff and the more local visitors including showing photos they'd taken... More

I can't say enough about this place. It is a great place to exercise, bring your children, meditate and especially bird watch. Don't let the location fool you into thinking that something in the middle of a city can't offer nature at it's best!

Stopped here twice when I was in Vegas. Great birding found 40 species both times in mid February. Best birding location I have found in the area especially waterfowl and shorebirds.

This place is for the birds and I mean it in a good way. We loved visiting this special place. Not only did we get a nice greeting from the staff, we saw the most beautiful birds in one place at one time. We are amateur photographers who love to take shots of all Gods Creatures. We could not get... More

Very nice place to visit in the morning and to start a day with view of beautiful lakes and mountains. Great not only for expert bird-naturalists but for anyone who enjoys nature. surprisingly the entrance is free. The place is run by volunteers and they encourage to sign in as they get their local support based on number of visitors.... More

Great place to visit for birds, especially during migration. They have binoculars to borrow if needed. Saw my first great horned owl!

The preserve is well organized and the volunteer docents are highly knowledgeable. This experience should not be missed by any birder visiting the Las Vegas area.

Nice place for a morning walk and bird watching. Many more white egrets than previous years. Recent clearing of scrub around ponds and addition of benches. Not much shade. So good for cool mornings and days.

I'm always amazed by the variety of migrating birds I see….and perhaps a coyote lurking on the shore of one of the five or six lakes. Summer/fall is white egret time! Always hummers and wonderful scenery--pink mountains in the distance.

Loved this place, no fee but we made donation thru a purchase. We are Birders from Florida so everything here out west was great. We added Townsend's Warbler and Black-tailed Gnatcatcher. Wonderful and beautiful ponds. Not to be missed if you are in Vegas and want to go birding. A short 30 min drive from the strip
