Valdez Duck Flats
Just a mile or so from the Valdez townsite are the tidal wet land areas known as the "Duck Flats". Be on the lookout for bald eagles, Harlequin ducks, Arctic terns, red-necked grebes, and great blue herons. Along the flats is one of our local salmon spawning areas, Crooked Creek, and a National Forest Service cabin. A paved walking/bicycle path runs along the Richardson Highway and the Duck Flats.
Local tour operators offer educational kayak tours of the Flats.
