Bird Watching

Over 250 Observed Species

Washington Ranch is bird watcher friendly, but please be respectful of any private event taking place on the grounds or in the buildings. Groups or events that have rented the facility take priority. 

We hope you come visit us and see many of the rare birds that pass through the Ranch. We are owned by CARC, INC a non-profit dedicated to enriching the lives of people with developmental disabilities. 

There is no charge to explore our grounds, but donations are welcome.  If you would like to learn more about CARC, INC or make a donation to our worthy cause and help us maintain this valuable resource, please visit
