We had the pleasure of visiting the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve in Henderson, NV. It's a great spot to visit if you enjoy bird watching. The preserve is made up of 9 ponds that are the evaporating ponds of the City's Wastewater Reclamation Facility. The Wastewater Reclamation Facility, operates to treat wastewater and meet water quality standards. It then uses the treated water to irrigate golf courses and highway medians or discharges the treated water into the Las Vegas Wash and Lake Mead. In the process of all of this, the city unwittingly created habitat that appeals to birds..
