Located 3 miles north of Moro on Hwy 97. Historic DeMoss Springs Memorial Park is on the Journey Through Time Scenic Byway on Highway 97 between Moro and Wasco. The DeMoss pioneer family settled nearby and platted a temperance town with streets named for poets and composers. Visitors enjoy a shady, summer respite with picnic tables, public restrooms, historic structures and interpretive signs.


Habitat and Birds

A collection of low brush and tall cottonwoods attract migrants and a few residents. Passerines include Bullock’s Oriole, several warblers, House Wren, vireos, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Hermit Thrush, Western Tanager, and several flycatchers. It’s a good place to find Northern Flickers and an occasional Barn or Great Horned Owl. Rarities include Summer Tanager, Cackling Goose, and Northern Saw-whet Owl.
