Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands

  • Tres Rios Wetlands 5615 South 91st Avenue Tolleson, AZ, 85353 United States (map)

Tres Rios stands for "Three rivers" and refers to the confluence of the Salt, Gila, and Agua Fria Rivers. It is a 700 acre environmental restoration project that releases  reclaimed wastewater back into what would be naturally existing wetlands. It is home to an extensive variety of wildlife such as bobcats, beavers, muskrats, skunks, raccoons etc., and is an oasis magnet for migratory birds. Walking distance may be up to five miles, but we may be permitted to enter the most extensive portion of the wetlands for this trip.  We could have some exciting observations such as huge flocks of blackbirds, and close looks at waterfowl and shorebirds! Difficulty: 2-3 for potential mileage walked. Limit 7. Bring water and snacks. If you have a spotting scope, we may use it.

Leader: Dara Vasquez.
