Mehraban Wetlands (Draper Wetland Park)

Mehraban Wetlands Trail    by Milt Moody    İMilton G. Moody

Directions:  Take the 106th South, (Draper/Riverton) exit (#291) from I-15 and go east to 1000 East (Carnation Dr/) and turn right (south). Continue south to 11815 South (Riparian Drive). Turn right (west) and go west about two blocks to a small parking lot at the bend in the road. 

Description: This is a recently rehabilitated wetlands area that has starting picking up many more migrants and permanent residents in the last few years. There are several walkways around various ponds and boggy areas. Worth a trip in the evenings, especially if you like the sound of hundreds of Red-Winged Blackbirds serenading you. ~ Keith Morlock

Birds: Good riparian spot, flycatchers, W. Kingbird, orioles, grosbeaks, chickadees, accipiters. KC Childs reported a Black Phoebe here, which Steve Carr verified later the same day or next day, about 5-6 years ago.
