San Joaquin River National Wildlife Refuge

There’s a huge restoration effort going on here, and it’s a marvel to witness. Many of the riverbanks plants and wildlife have been destroyed over the past few decades due to changing land use in the area. The efforts to replenish the ecosystem have been relentless and now plays host to a number of rare wildlife. Swainson’s hawks nest in the canopy of tall cottonwood trees. Herons and cormorants form communal nesting colonies within the tops of the large valley oaks. Endangered riparian brush rabbits have been re-introduced to this restored habitat. The land also supports a diversity of breeding songbirds including grosbeaks, orioles, flycatchers, and warblers, as well as the least Bell’s vireo – an endangered species which had last nested in the San Joaquin Valley more than five decades ago. The 4-mile Pelican Nature Trail and Beckwith Road wildlife viewing area provide opportunities to view wildlife year round.
