Evans Creek Wetland Area
Evans Creek wetlands are a unique and exclusive area of the Arboretum. Regarded by locals as one of the few wetlands in Reno, it sits at the north end of the gardens. Flowing east and west, and visited by nearly 57 different species of birds during a season, it is also a wonderful place for "birders". A bridge and landing is there for you to relax, enjoy and observe the wildlife beneath the shade of the black willows and cottonwoods. Cattails and other riparian plants are also growing in the slow waters beneath the bridge and landing. It is a great escape from life's day to day routine where you can relax and unwind.
