Clark County Wetlands Park Las Vegas Henderson
The Clark County Wetlands Park is a 2,900-acre nature and wildlife habitat
viewing area bordering both sides of the Las Vegas Wash as it flows past
Frenchman Mountain and the red sandstone of Rainbow Gardens on its way to
Lake Mead. With miles of paved trails, visitors can explore the streams, ponds
the area home at least part of the year. The Great Blue Heron, Red-Shouldered
Hawk, Spotted Towhee, Red-winged Blackbird, Song Sparrow, Wood Duck, and
the Northern Saw-Whet Owl are among those that can be spotted. The
Wetlands Park is also home to the coyote, whose diet consists of rabbits, mice,
ground squirrels, lizards, insects, grasses and fruits. There have been few
instances of coyotes attacking humans. The visitor and education center offers
visitors a chance to examine the ecology of the area more closely and to learn
about the importance of preserving wildlife and protecting Lake Mead and the
Colorado River System.
