See the Wild Side
It might not come as a surprise, but because of our geographic location and abundance of well-preserved places, the San Luis Valley is a mecca for wildlife watching and birding enthusiasts. Between acting as a biannual layover for 23,000 Sandhill Cranes, homing over 2,000 wild Bison at the Zapata Ranch Conservatory, and calling home to over a hundred species of birds, it’s no wonder this place is teeming with wildlife.
Did we mention that the valley is home to three separate wildlife refuges? Baca National Wildlife Refuge, Alamosa National Wildlife Refuge, and the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge are each nearby.
