Railroad Valley Wildlife Management Area

Description:

A terrific birding place with 147 species listed with half considered common to the area. Four separate sections provide habitat for migratory and nesting waterfowl, non-game birds, mammals, and fishes. The areas cannot be seen from the highway, so it is a surprise to take a dirt road and find a wetland with tall reeds. Chimney Springs, Locke`s Pond, Big Well Ponds, and Blue Eagle Pond are four parts of the area accessible over dirt roads.

Directions:

Take U.S. Hwy 6 northeast of Tonopah about halfway to Ely.

November's Featured Park
The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
November's Animal
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
