Fodor's Review

The best place in the Moab area for bird-watching, this 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 miles.
