The Preserve is part of the Nature Conservancy and offers a wonderful display of many wildflowers,  including some less common species.   The Canyon Loop, should have by early June close to 50 wild flower species.  The native plant habitat is diverse and ranges  from pinon-juniper woodland to Gambel oak-mountain mahogany to tall prairie grasses.
