We were told by friends to come during the migration period which happens twice year. So we went when the birds were heading south. Several of my friends were physical challenged, even after surviving WWII and Korea. I called ahead and mention this to the Henderson Bird Preserve no problem. When we arrived Christiana was waiting for us with a... More

This preserve is a testament to the city of Henderson, for turning their evaporation ponds into a bird preserve. There are 8 ponds, surrounding by either paved or dirt walking paths. In addition to the water birds, we saw 2 desert bunnies and several road runners (who, to be honest, were not exactly running, but walking , and always away... More

Looking for a break from the excitement of "The Strip"? You don't need to be into "Birding" to enjoy this "Oasis in the Desert". Located about 25 minutes from the Strip is a truly well hidden nature reserve. Well paved paths, along with dirt trails provide a relaxing environment in which to watch the wildlife, have a picnic, or just... More

A bit hard to find but what a nice time we had. The walks were great, weather was so nice. What a great place to spend sometime. Lots of walking if you chose. Didn't see too many birds when we were there but lots of potential if you give it time.

The 5-star rating is strictly for birders. Someone seriously into it could easily spend the whole day hanging around to see what shows up. For those just looking for a scenic place to walk, I wouldn't give this more than 3-stars. The area around the entrance is nicely landscaped and anyone can enjoy watching Gambel's Quails run around, but it's... More

If you are a birdwatcher or nature enthusiast and find yourself in the Vegas area, this is a MUST SEE. Reasons I recommend this place: #1. You will see hundreds, thousands of birds (including a large variety of waterfowl and residents such as Gambel's quails and roadrunners) and enjoy walking flat, easy trails encompassing 9 ponds. I've come to this... More

A nice little hiking area depending on the time of the year and the time of day you can see more than birds.I plain on going back in March.

I recomment visiting in the spring or fall when the weather is not too hot yet. In the spring, the cactus are in bloom as well. It is a pleasant stroll around the area. Lots of ducks! There are benches along the way so you can sit and enjoy the scenery.

A beautiful wildlife preserve for birds and animals in the middle of the desert. A nice relaxing walk with such a variety of water fowl and other birds and animals! Such a pleasant surprise and free too. The City of Henderson has done a wonderful thing and wonderful job here! All of the staff were so helpful and friendly.

Who would've thought such a peaceful place full of wildlife came from an old water treatment plant! Saw my first road runner, bunnies & lots of birds. Pack a snack & have a quiet moment.
