Teal Pond

North of the Visitor Center, Teal Pond combines aquatic and riparian habitats. The combination creates a wetland – an area covered with water all or part of the year. Be very still upon approach and you just might see Mosquito Fish, Green Sunfish and Western Painted Turtles. Pelicans like to stop here during their migration and you’re sure to see Mallards and other duck on Teal Pond. Look for tracks and scat left by deer, raccoons, muskrats, pheasants and quail.
