The Sign Says it All - Camas Prairie Centennial Marsh

Whether you are a bird watcher, nature lover, photographer, or just like nice scenery you will love Camas Centennial Marsh. From mid-fall to early summer the marsh is teeming with all kinds of birds, including raptors, gees, mallards, teals, herons, and cranes.

From late May to mid-June the marsh plays host to a spectacular array of purple camas lilies, and during this time it fills up with thousands of waterfowl and other birds. Free to visit, the marsh is a perfect place for a family outing while staying in Fairfield or the surrounding area. Bring a picnic and spend the day getting back to nature.
