Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge encompasses 860,010 acres, the majority (nearly every acre) of which are open to the public for wildlife related activities including wildlife watching and photography, primitive camping, limited hunting, and environmental education and interpretation. This includes 803,000 acres of designated wilderness area providing additional protection and primitive access to viewing plants, animals, and the natural environment.
Our website provides a number of ways to learn about the diversity of vegetation on the refuge. Take a look, give us a call, shoot us an email, and come visit the great variety yourself. After obtaining a free access permit, you can visit the refuge at any time. We hope to see you here.
