New Wildlife Viewing Area In Hagerman


By Joey Martin

Hagerman, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The Thousand Springs Scenic Byway is home to some of the most diverse wildlife in the State of Idaho.

That's why the Hagerman Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Thousand Springs Byway committee decided to vamp up one of the byways most visited rest stops.

On Wednesday, students from Hagerman High School did their part in making the newest wildlife view area ready for the public.

The new viewing area will provide easy viewing of the many species of birds found in the Hagerman area.

“This area is so… we have such a great environment for watching wildlife especially the birds. And this is to take advantage of that.”
Said the executive director of Southern Idaho tourism, Debbie Dane.

The new viewing area is located along Thousand Springs Byway, just west of the Gooding County line.

In a few weeks the group will also be installing interpretive signage at the site.

The entire project was funded by a Scenic Byways grant and built in cooperation with the Idaho Transportation Department.
