Glenn County Walkabouts
The “Sergeant Margie” dog-face beside an entry means the place is dog-friendly (you can take your leashed dog there).
Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge: The Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge (SNWR) is part of a huge complex of protected wildlife areas which includes the Delevan Wildlife Refuge, the Colusa Wildlife Refuge, and the Sutter Wildlife Refuge, and by itself comprises over 10-thousand acres of permanent ponds and seasonal marshlands. It’s an annual stop-off point for a wide variety of waterfowl during the migratory seasons. The SNWR is open from one hour before dawn to one hour before dusk. You pay a small fee to enter ($6 for a day pass, $12 for a year’s pass) at a kiosk by the front gate (that takes credit cards or cash). Parking is adequate and there are accessible restrooms on the outside of the visitor’s center (so you can get to them even when the center is closed). Dogs are allowed (on a 6-foot leash).
