National Wildlife Refuge - New Mexico
San Andres NWR is completely surrounded by the White Sands Missile Range and is closed to the public for security reasons. The San Andres National Wildlife Refuge is located in the southern San Andres Mountains of southcentral New Mexico. The refuge, which lies within the northernmost extension of the Chihuahuan Desert, has elevations ranging from 4,200 feet (1,300 m) to 8,239 feet (2,511 m) feet. Refuge habitats vary from creosote and Chihuahuan desert grasslands in the bajadas to pinyon-juniper woodlands at higher elevations. A few springs, seeps, and seasonal streams provide water for wildlife and riparian habitats in the refuge.
