From the west side of Baker City, take Hwy 30 (10th Street) north to the edge of the city. Turn left (use the left turn lane) on Pocahontas Road (Look for the local Dept. of Forestry/Fish & Wildlife buildings on the right and a livestock supply store on the left.) Keep to this road as it winds through farmland. Near mile 13.5 look for a right turn on the Anthony Lakes Hwy and this will get you to Haines (see the Haines Sewage Ponds below) and then back to Baker City.Directions
Habitat and Birds
Most of this area is open farmland but there are several riparian strips and some dry scrub-land. Long-billed Curlew are plentiful here in season. This might be a good area to check for Burrowing Owl and Short-eared Owl.
