An important California Bird Area
In the long shadow of Mt. Shasta, this large area of grassland, juniper woodland, scattered wetlands encompasses about 5,000 acres of habitat managed as Shasta Valley Wildlife Area (DFG). The Shasta and Little Shasta rivers flow through the area and support riparian habitat. Several small reservoirs constructed for irrigation water storage within the wildlife area support small marshes and riparian thickets where the water seeps out of their dams. These vital habitats are home to scores of birds.
