Atwood State Wildlife Area - Logan County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This seldom-visited SWA provides some good access to stretches of the South Platte River and associated riparian corridor. The best access is from the northern parking lot, especially east along the river. Look for sparrow flocks in winter, NE specialties in summer, and migrants at other seasons. Scanning the river from the bridges may be worth your while; look for dabblers, Belted Kingfisher, and possibly shorebirds when the water is low enough to expose sandbars.

Habitat: Lowland Riparian
Directions: Take exit 115 off of I-76 (the exit for CO-63), and go north from the exit on CO-63 for a little over 3 miles, to US-6. Take a left (SE) on US-6 and travel almost 3 miles to CR 29.5, on the left. The SWA is along this road about a half mile from US-138.
