Copper River Delta (part 2)


The Copper River Delta, which extends for 700,000 acres (2,800 km2) is the considered the largest contiguous wetlands along the Pacific coast of North America. It is used annually by 16 million shorebirds, including the world’s entire population of western sandpipers. It is also home to the world’s largest population of nesting trumpeter swans. Barely visible is the Copper River Highway, which cuts across portions of the delta and ends at the reconstructed “Million Dollar Bridge”.
