Join us and share the opportunity to view hundreds of ibises, egrets, and blackbirds and many other migratory and resident birds in their natural habitat.
Located on the grounds of the San Jacinto Valley Regional Water Reclamation Facility, this multi-purpose constructed wetlands "polishes" recycled water before it is distributed to nearby farms, dairies and the San Jacinto Wildlife Area for irrigation and additional environmental uses.
Reservations are required for groups of 5 or more. Visitors are encouraged to arrive around 7:45 am because of the logistics involved. All visitors must be accompanied back to the education facility. As a result, the gate will be closed by 8:05 am when staff will caravan to the wetlands which are located on the western side of the San Jacinto Valley Regional Water Reclamation Facility.
The facility at 770 N. Sanderson Avenue, is set between the Ramona Expressway and Cottonwood Avenue. Signage will help direct visitors to the appropriate entrance gate.
Toilet facilities, free snacks and water will be available for the visitors before setting off. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended, and cameras and binoculars are welcomed. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Visitors are required to stay with the group for the two-hour tours. In case of rain, the tour will be cancelled. For more information, please call EMWD at (951) 928-3777, ext. 4405.
