Timpas Creek State Wildlife Area - Otero County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Another seldom visited area. The main attraction here is a small but dense grove of trees that should be good for migrants in season. You can also walk or drive along the canal near here, which provides access to many more groves of trees, though you may have to bird them from the road. A small pond on the SWA property doesn't look like it has much potential, but you never know.
Habitat: Lowland Riparian, Pond/Lake/Reservoir
Directions: From Rocky Ford, go south on CO 71 four miles to CO 10 and turn left (east). Go 1.5 miles to and turn right (south) on CR 21, then go one mile to CR Z and turn west. The SWA is along this road near the county landfill.
