Type of Project: Habitat Reserve
Wolf Bay parallels Prairie Channel of the Columbia River and is upstream of the mouth of the John Day River. The saltwater intrusion at this river mile is very low and thus this wetland functions as a freshwater system. Sitka spruce along the southern and western boundaries are critical habitat, most notably for Bald eagles that have been nesting in the 15-acre Twilight Eagle Sanctuary adjoining the wetlands. Wolf Bay provides habitat for bald eagles that nest in adjacent sanctuary.
