The 28-acre Waukell Creek Wildlife Area is a long, narrow parcel of land situated on the east side of Highway 101, and was designated as a wildlife area by the Fish and Game Commission in 1993. The dominating feature is the willow- and cottonwood-lined Waukell Creek, which flows through the property from south to north, and enters the Klamath River a short distance north of the Wildlife Area boundary.
The area is of importance mainly for water- and riparian-associated wildlife, including waterfowl, waders, songbirds, and beavers. This riparian corridor also supports resident rainbow trout, and the occasional Roosevelt elk.
For more information, call the area at (707) 464-2523 or the Northern Region Redding office at (530) 225-2300.
