Richardson Wildfowl Preserve is a small but vital wetland preserve in the Deer Harbor area on Orcas Island. It is named in honor of Dr. Frank Richardson, the curator of birds at the Burke Museum and a professor of zoology at the University of Washington. After his retirement in 1972, Dr. Richardson observed some 80 species of birds in this unusually active marsh.
