The Wood River Wetlands Tour

The Wood River Wetlands.

Watch all the Birds at these Wetlands!

Did you know that 3/4 of the birds on the Pacific Flyway stop in the Klamath Basin and the Wood River Wetlands is the place to view them birds! Pelicans, Herons, Egrets, Grebes, Wood Ducks, Pelicans, Ospreys, Eagles, Seagulls, Comarants, Swallows, and a whole bunch more are some that you may see. Along with the birds you may also see Beavers, Marmots, River Otters and other wildlife. This place has such an awesome variety of wildlife! A favorite spot, for sure!

This float is one of our easiest and perfect for the beginner with little or no kayaking experiance. We start out at Petric Park and go through the wetlands to the Wood River, we float down stream to Agency Lake where we meander across back to another finger of the Wood then back through the wetlands to the launch ramp. 

 We take lots of pictures while on our tour so be sure to check out our Facebook Page  to see your tour and feel free to share.

A Little More Info

 The 3,200-acre wetland is part of the historic delta of the Wood River adjacent to Agency Lake, and it includes three miles of public access to the river banks of the Wood River itself. Since acquiring the property in 1994, the Bureau of Land Management has focused primarily on wetland and river channel restoration. Water in the 3,200-acre wetland is manipulated to enhance the habitat for wetland plants and processes, while improving water quality for fish and wildlife in Wood River.
