Bird Walks

Overview

Bird Walks

Join EMWD for a Bird Walk and share the opportunity to view ibises, egrets, blackbirds and many other migratory and resident birds in their natural habitat at the EMWD Wetlands.

Located on the grounds of the San Jacinto Valley Regional Water Reclamation Facility, the 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.
