Slough Wildlife Area
From Interstate 5 take the Hwy 12 exit east
and then immediately south on Thornton Rd. Turn right (west) 1.3 miles
south of Hwy 12. and go under the highway. Continue on the I5 Frontage
Rd. to the end.
This area includes open water with wetland edges. There is a nice
riparian area known as Cottonwood alley between 2 of
Wintering sparrows, wrens, waterfowl and rails (including Black Rail).
(Caution! This area looks very trashy and I
would not recommend going here alone. JG)
