Imagine a leisurely hike through a lush, verdant canyon of willows and free flowing water. Big Morongo Canyon Preserve is truly an oasis in this transition zone between the Mojave and Sonoran deserts. The lush vegetation stands in sharp contrast to the surrounding desert slopes. More than 240 species of birds have been observed in the Preserve, including several rare or unusual species, such as the Least Bell's Vireo and the Vermilion Flycatcher, which have been known to nest here. Many other species are numerous during the spring and fall migration seasons.
