There was no water in this, nor in the lake at the other end of Big Bear Lake, so there was no wildlife either.

In 1982 this 45 acres preserve was established as a restored habitat for winter waterfowl, bald eagles, osprey and pelicans. We were lucky to be visiting for the first snowfall of winter 2015. The fall foliage brought vivid colors to the trees and the marsh...More

This boardwalk trail overlooks the marsh at the east end of Big Bear Lake. It is a great place for seeing water birds and other marsh-loving animals. It's the quiet end of the lake where no boats or swimmers are allowed. A very peaceful, relatively...More
