Reardan's Audubon Lake and the wetlands located just outside of the town of Reardan in Lincoln County are a valuable natural wildlife site.


WDFW's Reardan Audubon Lake Wildlife Area's 277 acres are a combination of upland prairie, vernal potholes, marsh, and the 80-acre lake itself.  INLC, Spokane Audubon Society, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Reardan Chamber of Commerce, and many others raised money to permanently protect Audubon Lake as a refuge for birds and as a Watchable Wildlife site. 


In 2015 INLC purchased the Deep Creek Preserve immediately adjacent to the WDFW preseserve. This unique 150-acre property offers lessons on the land, from the effects of the Ice Age Floods to the fragility of wetlands. Visiting this unique preserve, the young and young-at-heart can observe an array of birds as they discover a safe stopover in their migration, and see the wonder of plants working to grow amidst the basalt. 


The two preserves include the headwaters to three creeks - Crab Creek, Deep Creek, and Spring Creek.
