E. Galleria Dr. (at Moser Drive)
The Preserve is located at 350 E. Galleria Dr., near the intersection of Galleria Drive and Boulder Highway (look for signs in the medians). It is located within the Water Reclamation Facility and sits on approximately 140 acres.
The Preserve is home to thousands of migratory waterfowl as well as numerous resident desert birds. There are nine ponds available for birding, surrounded by both paved and soft surfaces. The paved path is approximately 3/4 of a mile long and is accessible by wheelchair. The soft surfaces are mostly level and allow for easy walking. When you visit, expect to do a lot of walking and allow yourself adequate time to visit the area. We also recommend that you wear appropriate clothing and comfortable, sturdy shoes. Bring water, a hat, and wear sunscreen. If you do not have binoculars, we have some available for loan.
Named "Best Place For Bird Watching" in Desert Companion's 3rd Annual Best of the City.
Please do not feed the birds or wildlife.
The Bird Viewing Preserve is located on the eastern edge of the Pacific Migratory Flyway and many of the birds that come here are temporary visitors. Feeding wildlife disrupts natural feeding behaviors and encourages an unhealthy association with humans. Pets are not permitted at the Bird Viewing Preserve.
While you're here, be sure to stop by our gift shop. We have a nice selection of souvenirs, educational materials, and gifts for every bird lover. We also offer programs for all ages. Please refer to Henderson Happenings.
