Desert Tortoise in the Mojave Desert
Threatened Desert Tortoise
Within the wilderness is a portion of the Eldorado Mountains, gently rolling hills and wandering washes extending to Lake Mohave. Rugged mountains, secluded valleys, and flat alluvial fans provide opportunities for seclusion and isolation in a setting of scenic splendor. Teddy bear cholla forests, the threatened desert tortoise, and Townsend’s western big-eared bats are just some of the unique species surviving in this part of the Mojave Desert. This area is jointly managed with the Bureau of Land Management.
