Viewing Wildlife

Focus your binoculars or camera lens on the wide
array of animals that enrich any ARP recreational
experience—from elk to eagles, prairie dogs to
prairie falcons, bighorn sheep to burrowing owls and
bluebirds. Practice responsible viewing and keep your
distance—wildlife may run away, abandon a nest or
young, or even attack if you get too close. Learn to
watch wildlife without being watched back!
