The Northern Nevada Swamp

Although Nevada is primarily a desert climate, it can turn into wetlands at parts of the year. These wetlands are home to a divers bio culture of flora and fauna. Here at Dickinson Bayou Group we are dedicated to exploring these desert swamps and seeing just what discoveries are there to be made.

Join us over the next couple of weeks as we explore the first of these desert swamps in the Washoe Valley of Northern Nevada. Here, we find that once the snow melts, the grounds get very swampy and a different group of animals come out. This valley is rich in insect live and therefore attracts many birds that feast on the bloom on insects. The first few that we found are grey horned owls that we will be sharing with you all!
