Desert Tortoise Research Natural Area

Desert Tortoises are shy and elusive.  Consider yourself very lucky when you see one.  The preserve is where you have the best chance of doing so. 

While you are in the preserve you can follow educational trails that inform about the plants and animals that share the space with the tortoises.
