We visit whenever we are in Las Vegas. Good for morning walks and bird watching. Not too many birds this visit. Always have ducks and cranes. No roadrunner this time.

I live in Henderson and we love going out to the bird viewing preserve just to walk. We don't necessarily know anything about birds. It's very peaceful and beautiful. There are many paths so you can walk a quick loop around the lake or spend...More

We were totally surprised to find this rich birding spot so close to the Vegas strip and in such arid country. Fantastic! The volunteers/staff at the desk are a great help.

Went to the bird sanctuary last Friday. Arrived at 11:30a.m. The brochure says it closes at 2:00p.m. The guy came running out to the parking lot and said he couldn't let us in because 2.5 hours would not be enough time for us to see...More

Even if you are not bird watcher, the Bird Preserve is worth a visit. The setting is so peaceful and the birds are beautiful. Plan to spend some time walking around the various lakes and don't miss the viewing tower and pier. Don't forget to...More

Bird preserve is just great - quiet - saw birds that I am not familiar with in this area - people in the reception area are very friendly and will answer any questions you have - a beautiful, quiet place to visit.

I'd have to ditto the other answers: the staff are very friendly and very willing to share their observations and help with visitors' questions. Lots of good birding surrounding Las Vegas and Henderson.

I'd say yes because you need to sign guest book before entering. It's a small center with a few items for sale and a small learning area. Enjoy.

The seasonal birds, such as ducks, migrate through, so I guess it would all depend on the weather conditions in the U.S. at the time of your trip. There are about 8 ponds to hold swimming fowl, so there's plenty of room... More
