Scott M. Matheson Wetlands Preserve

Scott M. Matheson Wetlands Preserve Review

The best place in the Moab area for bird watching, this desert oasis is home to hundreds of species, including such treasures as the pied-billed grebe, the cinnamon teal, and the northern flicker. It's also a great place to spot beavers and muskrats playing in the water. A boardwalk winds through the preserve to a viewing shelter. Free nature walks are offered Saturday at 8 am from March to May and from September to November. To reach the preserve, turn northwest off U.S. 191 at Kane Creek Boulevard and continue northwest approximately 2 mi.
