Location

If you’re coming from the south via I-5, take exit 188 (30th Ave/LCC). At the stop sign turn left on to E 30th Ave and go over I-5 to next intersection with a light, just on the west side of I-5, and continue straight through the intersection on E 30th Ave. If you’re coming from the north via I-5, take exit 189 (30th Ave/LCC). At the light turn right and continue south along the I-5 frontage road to the next light. Turn right on to E 30th Ave. Once on E 30th Ave, go straight through the next intersection with the light and take the next LCC exit, loop around under E 30th Ave and continue toward LCC. When the campus parking lot is open, you can park in the lot and walk back to the ponds, watching out for traffic. Campus security does not want visitors parking on the entrance road.

Habitat and Birds

Like most treatment facilities, this one can produce a good variety of common waterfowl and the occasional visitor. Ruddy Ducks are often seen here. Ducks, geese, and gulls are the major draws at the ponds.
