Blanca Wildlife Habitat Area (Blanca Wetlands)

When you think of gulls, sandpipers and pelicans, you picture a vacation paradise on an ocean beach, but few people realize there is a salty shore paradise located right here in the San Luis Valley. Flocks of these shorebirds find refuge at the Blanca Wetlands along with the other 158 bird species found there. What appears at first glance to be a salty desert environment with flooded low areas reveals to the more studious observer a plethora of birds, amphibians, mammals, fish, and yes, insects. Wheelchair accessible trails help to make this bird watcher's paradise accessible to all.
