Leatha Jean Stassen State Wildlife Area
This newly christened state wildlife area in the heart of Grand Junction is a little gem that gives good access to riparian habitat and a beautiful little marsh. Keep an ear out for Sora and Virginia Rail in the marsh, and riparian species such as Western Kingbird, Warbling Vireo, and Lazuli Bunting. The margins of the SWA are brushy hill slopes, and could have birds like Virginia’s Warbler and Black-chinned Hummingbird.
