The Columbia Basin Wildlife Areas are a composition of four Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (department) managed wildlife areas located along the Columbia River, in the Columbia Basin. The four wildlife areas (Power City, Irrigon, Coyote Springs and Willow Creek) are within the Columbia Plateau ecoregion. Management agreements for these areas were initially established between 1971 and 1977 between the department and Federal agencies which own the lands.

The Columbia Basin Wildlife Areas, which total approximately 1,885 acres, provide an important landbase for the conservation and recreation of fish and wildlife within a highly privatized and altered landscape and play an important role for the Fall and Spring migrations of waterfowl in addition to resident upland game bird production.

Best time to visit: Upland birds and songbirds are common during most of the year. Waterfowl, Wading Birds, and Shorebirds may be observed during a short period of inundation in the Fall and Spring.

What to see and do

This area provides a variety of habitats for viewing songbirds year-round. Consult Game Bird Regulations for hunting during authorized seasons.
