Saratoga in Carbon County, Wyoming — The American West (Mountains)
Storer - Saratoga Lake Wetland
The project was designed to improve resting and nesting habitat for waterfowl and water birds and provide yearlong habitat for wetland associated mammals. This objective was accomplished by creating additional open water area through a series of dikes and ditches and improving water management capabilities by constructing and redesigning water control structures.
The project site hosts a wide variety of birds including white-faced ibis, American white pelican, osprey, American bittern, snowy egret, marsh wren, great-blue heron, Canada geese and locally common species of ducks. Muskrats, mink and raccoons use the marshes and wetlands and species such as mule deer, pronghorn and red fox can be found on the upland areas.
The area is open to the public year-round. However, best wildlife viewing
During your visit please remember that this area is home to the animals you see here. Respect their privacy by causing as little disturbance as possible to them and their habitat.
