Stillwater Adventure


Some twelve thousand years ago  a lake was created by melting glaciers.  Stillwater Marsh is what is left. 
If you look high for  the old shore line you will see where the shore line was way back then.
Stillwater Marshes remaine a paradise for the migratory birds.  It remains a great site  for migratory birds.









In  the 1900's the Newlands Irrigation Project where the water was dammed and the Lathontan Reservoir was created.  To prevent the loss of the Stillwater marshes there was the Truckee-Carson Irrigation District formed to manage 224,000 acres, which was named Stillwater Wildlife Management area.

  In the 1980's the floods washed away the topsoil exposing village, artifacts and burials dating back 300 to 3200 years ago.
There is a lot to see in the area.
