The Nisqually Delta (or Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge) is one of the finest estuaries in Puget Sound, and a good place for paddlers who like to exploit their craft’s shallow water abilities and explore brackish back channels as few other boaters can. Needless to say, this is a prime place for birders. In 2009, the Nisqually Tribe removed 8 miles of dike, including the Brown Farm Dike, opening the delta and freeing the river to flow naturally for the first time in a century.
