The Nature Conservancy owns and manages nearly 8,000 acres of the Cheyenne Bottoms basin. Wetlands are natural water control systems that filter sediment from water, prevent flooding, refill underground water systems, and make perfect resting spots for millions of shorebirds and waterfowl.
Bird-watching and wildlife viewing is always welcome at the preserve. An observation tower is available for public use, located south of Highway 4 between the two large marshes to offer an elevated view of the wetlands.
Information about the preserve is available at two different kiosks. At these kiosks you can find maps, locations of restrooms, best viewing points, and wildlife information.
