What You Can Find There
- Reptiles -There are many reptiles, but make sure you give them a wide berth if you see them! Some are endangered, and some may pose a danger. Either way, keep a respectful distance. You can find Leopard Lizards, Sidewinder snakes, Side-Blotched Lizards, Zebra-Tailed Lizards, and the endangered Coachella Valley Fringe-Toed Lizards.
- Mammals - A few of the mammals you may be able to spot on the trails are Desert Pocket Mice, Pocket Gophers, Antelope Ground Squirrels (which look like squirrels, not antelope!), and the more elusive coyotes.
- Birds - There are many birds that you can see, especially if you go on a birding guided walk, or go out in the early morning. Birds that have been spotted are the Kestral, Phainopepla, Great Horned Owl, and Black-Throated Sparrow.
The Coachella Valley Desert offers so much wildlife you may need to go back several days while you are in the area! Go for a hike, have a picnic, but be sure to enjoy seeing the wildlife of the Coachella Valley Desert Preserve.
