San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary
Wetlands cover 300 acres at this tranquil preserve that has 12 miles of trails. The Sanctuary is home to hundreds of species of birds, mammals, insects, reptiles, crustaceans, and other creatures native to the San Joaquin Valley.
Animal presence changes every season, which is why the park suggests visiting each season.
Admission is free.
