Nature enthusiasts can enjoy a unique combination of activities, including excellent bird watching opportunities, educational programs, nature exploration and waterfowl hunting.
Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area is the perfect spot to escape urban life in nearby Sacramento and Davis. Birders, hunters and schoolchildren all come to the area to experience wildlife up-close in nature.
Located in the heart of the Pacific Flyway, Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area's more than 17,770 acres is part wildlife area, part outdoor education experience, and part birders' paradise all in one.
Hours: The Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area is open all year round from sunrise to sunset except for Christmas Day.
