Cottonwood Marsh photo by Peter Burke

Accessible Prospect Reservoir - Weld County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This large private reservoir, ringed by some mature cottonwoods, is barely scannable from the south end of the jog in CR 59. Below the dam the road winds through a good number of private Russian-olive thickets, a good place to look for robins, waxwings and other goodies in winter.

The nearby seasonal ponds at CR 6 x CR 61 are worth a stop in shorebird season. Don't take my word for it--ask Colorado's first Ruff!

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir, Marsh, Hedgerow/Shelterbelt
Directions: From I-76 at Hudson (exit 31), take CO 52 east seven miles to CR 59 and turn right (south). Prospect Reservoir is four miles south on the right (west) side of the road.
