Roughly 150 acres along the Rogue River in southwest Oregon, from the confluence with the Applegate River to the lower end of the county park.

Red Marker Whitehorse County Park
Roughly 150 acres along the Rogue River in southwest Oregon, from the confluence with the Applegate River to the lower end of the county park.

Location: Southwest Oregon along the Rogue River about 5 miles west of Grants Pass.

Description: Roughly 150 acres along the Rogue River, from the confluence with the Applegate River to the lower end of the county park. Includes multiple ownerships, but mostly county. Includes the river itself, with gravel bars, large-size cottonwood gallery forest, willow and blackberry thickets, some small grassland areas, and backwater locations, sloughs and ponds.

Ornithological Highlights: The strength of this site is the high species richness due to the diversity of habitats in this small area. Of 20 sites surveyed monthly (April 1999 to February 2002) in the Rogue Valley -- and chosen in part for their diversity -- the greatest number of species (144) were recorded at Whitehorse County Park. Over 170 species have been recorded here in the past 30 years.
