We went to the Henderson Bird Viewing sanctuary in Mid-May. It is a little west of where your GPS directions will say it is. The sanctuary ponds are actually part of the wastewater treatment process for the area so they make you stay on the paths for health reasons. The guy working the desk was very friendly and informative. We... More

We like to go there with our dogs since it's usually quiet, and very natural. When the washes get too hot, we'll come here on weekends and walk the dogs. Sometimes there are idiots who let their dogs off-leash (stupid), we run into other responsible owners who also love the area. While walking the dog(s), we also get a chance... More

We wanted to avoid the hustle bustle of Vegas. We called the sanctuary and booked a guided tour on an 8 or 10 seater golf cart. ALL FOR FREE. the cart is for groups but there was just my wife and I and the cart was available that day. Walking may have been more fruitful, but it was hot and... More

Be sure to take water bottle, hat and sunscreen. I walked about 2 to 3 miles and took great photos. Birds, ducks, rabbit, turtles. Nice back to nature in desert near Las Vegas citylife.

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
