Warner Wetlands

Area of Critical Environmental Concerns - Oregon

Formed thousands of years ago when gigantic faults in the earth’s crust shifted, today’s Warner Wetlands is a 40-mile chain of lakes separated by a unique series of bow-shaped dunes. Each spring and fall, thousands of birds visit the wetlands during their annual migrations. Recreation facilities include the Hart Bar Interpretive Site, Warner Valley Overlook, and the Warner Valley Canoe Trail. The interpretive site has restrooms, a sheltered picnic table, interpretive panels, and a 0.25 mile hiking trail to wildlife viewing blinds. The Warner Valley Overlook affords a panoramic overview of the wetlands with the desert buttes to the west and south.
