Fallon

National Wildlife Refuge - Nevada

Fallon National Wildlife Refuge is located in western Nevada. It was established as a refuge and breeding ground for birds and other wild animals. The refuge comprises of playa and wetland habitat in the Carson Sink. This area, in the Lahontan Valley, is at the terminus of the Carson River. In years of high water flows down the river, the refuge is important for migratory shorebirds and waterfowl. However, due to diversions, in most years there is not enough flow for the river to even reach the refuge lands. The refuge is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, but there are no facilities on the refuge. Roads are primitive and passable only during those periods of dry weather.
