The Mouth of Cottonwood Creek Wildlife Area consists of approximately 1,100 acres of primarily riparian habitat, with cottonwood, Oregon ash, and willow dominating the overstory. Native understory species include California rose, blackberry, box elder, and native grasses. It is an excellent habitat for the Swainson's hawk, bald eagle, ringtail, river otter, and beaver. Many species of songbird may also be viewed.
