Safe OHV riding
Habitat fragmentation and disruption of wildlife corridors are great threats to wildlife. Habitat loss and global climate change threaten the survival of large numbers of species. Numerous small streams convey runoff from the mountains, and recharge declining ground water levels resulting from the population growth in the western Mojave Desert.
Sheep Creek Wash
Flash flood in Sheep Creek Wash
Along Sheep Creek Wash, the most rapid infiltration occurs in upstream reaches near the mountain front.
Protect important natural resources, elevational gradients, wildlife corridors, habitats, plants, animals, landscapes, streams, and view sheds between the desert and the mountains and in the Western Mojave Desert for future generations to enjoy.
All communities need local parks and natural areas where they can walk in nature and recover from the daily stresses in our lives. Park planning and protecting our natural resources are part of our responsibility to our children and grandchildren.
