Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge
Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge is a waterfowl oasis in the middle of the desert. Virtually hidden on Highway 93, approximately 90-miles northeast of Las Vegas is one of the most remarkable natural occurrences a person could imagine, a natural oasis. The name "Pahranagat" comes from the Paiute Indian word meaning "place of many waters.

Located in very rugged area of arid creosote bush desert and an occasional Joshua tree, a person could travel for many miles in any direction and still be in a remote area. Humanity has recently discovered the hidden beauty of this area, but the migrating waterfowl and other birds have known of this spot for decades.

Encompassing more than 5,380 acres, Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge contains a diverse range of habitats from desert to cultivated fields, marsh and open water. Wildlife ranges greatly, from jackrabbits and bull frogs to blackbirds, roadrunners, mallards and hawks. They established Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge in 1964 and it is host to thousands of waterfowl today.

Hunting, fishing, camping and non-motorized boats are quite the "in thing" to do year-round in this area. Finding this unique spot is easy. Take I-15 north to the I-93 cutoff, then take I-93 North toward Alamo/Tonopah and it will be left about 60-miles from the junction.
