The 415-acre Kiona Creek unit is located off Savio Road west of Randle. It is managed for black-tailed deer, dabbling ducks, and other riparian forest and forested wetland habitat species. There are three perennial creeks (Squaw, Kiona and Oliver) that have been largely altered to drain water from the agricultural fields that comprise the western portion of the unit. Squaw and Oliver creeks supply water to the large wetland area that comprises the eastern portion of the unit. In 2004, a wetland restoration plan was completed to optimize the habitat value and restore hydrology to more natural conditions.
