Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area
Designated a "Watchable Wildlife" area, this area of nearly a half-million acres winds along an 80-mile stretch of the Snake River Canyon, south of Boise. One of the densest concentrations of nesting birds of prey is here, along with over 250 other wildlife species. Boating, fishing and hiking are just few of the activities available here and there are some tours offered by private outfitters. The best time for viewing is spring and early summer, when over 800 pairs of hawks, falcons, eagles and owls come to mate and raise their young. A developed campground is located at Cove Recreation Site.

This is a fabulous treat to some of the most awesome creatures in nature. Even if you are not a nature lover like me, you can't help but be moved by the beauty of these birds. Staff is very knowledgeable and demonstrations were fabulous. We took three young grandchildren and I am sure it created a memory they will never forget.
The beauty of the habitat and the richness of the wildlife cannot be matched. Amazing numbers of raptors are seen in all areas. Unusual species abound as they hunt for prey. For any birder or naturalist, this is a must see area.
