Wildlife at the Lake

Lake Cunningham has become a haven for migratory birds and other forms of wildlife. Great blue herons, snowy white egrets, and even white pelicans are frequent visitors to the park. Hawks frequently soar overhead. A large flock of Canadian geese, as well as several species of waterfowl, make the park their home a few months out of the year. Jack rabbits and squirrels can also be found in many areas.

Please remember that all park animals are wild and we ask that you not feed, capture, or chase them.
