Long Description:

The 72-acre Suter Wildlife Refuge provides a home for many migrating birds along the banks of Oso Bay. The park is dedicated to Hans and Pat Suter, who were instrumental in protecting Oso Creek from industrial development. An 800-foot boardwalk designed for birding stretches across marshes (created by fresh water inflow from a wastewater treatment plant), tidal pools, and into Oso Bay. Going in the opposite direction, along the shore thick with chapparal, is a one mile (round trip) nature trail.

Other facilities include covered picnic tables, grills, a playground, interpretive displays, and a butterfly garden. And, of course, a couple of geocaches.
