Oxbow Nature Study Area

Oxbow Nature Study Area
3100 Dickerson Road

Oxbow Nature Study Area is located on the Truckee River, one mile from downtown Reno. This site serves the public as the State of Nevada model for Wildlife Education and Aquatic Education programs offered by the Nevada Department of Wildlife. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service also recognizes Oxbow Nature Study Area as a national model for a successful urban nature center.

Students on school field trips will enjoy walking the 1/3 mile-long wheelchair accessible nature trail, actively following the student guidebooks with teachers, parents and Wildlife Education Docents. Students then participate in hands-on wildlife and aquatic education programs. The Oxbow Nature Study Area is home to the Great blue heron, California quail, Cooper’s hawk, mule deer, beaver, Rainbow trout and more!

The Oxbow Nature Study Area is a partnership between the Nevada Department of Wildlife and the City of Reno Parks Department. It is officially adopted by the SBC Telephone Pioneers. The Fly-fishers of the Truckee River support several education programs at the Oxbow Nature Study Area such as the Trout in the Classroom riverside release.
