“WONDERFUL RELAXING PLACE”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

This is one of the most incredible places to visit and hike through. Its a very well managed refuge. We saw Canadian Geese, Snow Geese, Golden Eagles, Turtles, Mallards, Cormorants, Herons, Blue Herons, all kinds of Birds I didn't recognize, pheasant, hawks. A place of beauty and wonder. We did the auto tour and then did the hike. Hundreds of voices -- it is a incredible sound only to be found here.. What a song they sing. It's a joy to stop and listen
to them.

“Always five stars”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

I recommend both the Sacto and the Colusa Wildlife Refuge. There is a charge for the Sacto auto tour, but the one in Colusa, no charge.

“Amazing birdlife!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

A visit in autumn is highly recommended. The vast number and variety of birds is something to behold. Even if you are not a bird enthusiast you will still enjoy it here. There is a short interpretive trail and you will see lots of wildlife.

“Early morning walk was worth it in the summer”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Just a 10 minute drive from the Hotel. Beautiful preserve with lots of bunnies! Oh, and birds too! worth the $5 entry fee.

“Wildlife being "wild"”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Our audubon group visited 2 wildlife refuges in January: Colusa & Sacramento. Sacramento is larger and has a Visitor Center. There were MANY migrating birds throughout this large refuge. We saw several species of geese, teals,pintuck ducks, ibis, herons, bald eagles, hawks and pheasant. Also saw a raccoon washing his paws in creek. You drive the Autotrail, stay in your car and view the wildlife. There are stations along the way to get out and stretch and take pictures and a photography blind also. There is a large, elevated viewing platform here also, and a pit toilet. This place is great for viewing the wildlife in the area. Kids would love it too. There's a picnic area. The Visitor Center has a nice selection of books, cards, etc. This is a place I'll come back to again and again. Don't miss it if you're a nature lover!
