||Anaho Island NWR in Pyramid Lake, NV
||Celebrate the centennial of Anaho NWR and enjoy International Migratory Bird Day with fun, educational outdoor activities hosted by the Pyramid Paiute Tribe and USFWS.
Anaho Island sits in the northeast part of Pyramid Lake, which is managed by the Pyramid Paiute Tribe. The island provides seasonal nesting grounds for thousands of American white Pelicans and several other migratory water birds in spring and summer. The lake is one of a handful of 'terminal lakes' in Nevada, where the Truckee River ends, and its unique geography of tufa rock formations make it one of the most scenic locations in northern NV.
The Anaho Island NWR centennial celebration offers self-guided birding tours of the lakeshore, with expert volunteers staffing several key points of interest for public viewing of the nesting colony. An Environmental Education Fair is planned for the Tribal Visitor Center with interactive, hands-on displays for everyone. Special commemorative items will be on sale during the day.
