The Fremont-Kramer and Superior-Cronese Desert Wildlife Management Areas (DWMAs) are located in the heart of the Mojave Desert and provide habitat for various critically endangered species, as well as the active Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) user. Partnering with the Bureau of Land Management and California Department of Fish and Wildlife, THC has begun a long term land management project within these DWMAs.
We hold fee title to over 4000 acres of land in the Bureau of Land Management Barstow District near Fremont Peak, north and east of Highway 58 and Highway 395. This land is used for desert tortoise and Mohave ground squirrel mitigation through the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. We use grant funding from California State Parks Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division to help restore closed route networks, provide a law enforcement presence, reach out to off highway enthusiasts and provide education about the area.
