The Cantara / Ney Springs Wildlife Area was designated as a wildlife area by the Fish and Game Commission in 1996. It consists of two areas along the upper Sacramento River and includes 154 acres of mixed conifer, hardwoods and riparian vegetation. Species of interest include osprey, kingfisher, herons, and many species of migratory songbirds. The two parcels (Cantara and Ney Springs) both provide access to the river. Both access points are very scenic and provide access to excellent fishing opportunities.
