Upper Newport Bay

All the water from nearly 110 square miles of Central Orange County ends up here. The Upper Newport Bay is one of few remaining functioning wetlands in Southern California. Over 200 species of birds either nest here or feed here during their great migrations.

The Upper Newport Bay ranges from salty (like the ocean) at its mouth to brackish (sort of salty) near Jamboree Road.
