Sutter National Wildlife Refuge

Yuba City / Birding

Sutter National Wildlife Refuge is the southernmost refuge in the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge Complex, and is located in the Sacramento Valley of California. The refuge consists of about 2,600 acres primarily of wetland impoundments as well as some riparian and grassland habitat. About 80 percent of the refuge is located in the Sutter Bypass: a floodwater bypass from the Sacramento River that floods at least once a year and may cover portions of the refuge with up to twelve feet of water. Sutter Refuge typically supports wintering populations of more than 175,000 ducks and 50,000 geese.
