    Description

    Coyote Creek, along with its associated watershed in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, is an extremely rich riparian system in the Colorado Desert of California. It provides habitat for the least Bell's vireo (Vireo bellii pusillus), is used as a critical summer watering site for the peninsular bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis cremnobates), and was the site of major use and encampment by the Cahuilla Indians. Management activities have focused on maintaining or enhancing the integrity of the riparian system. Activities such as eliminating off-highway vehicle use and removing cattle with helicopters have been controversial, yet have demonstrated progress towards achieving the goals of protecting the riparian habitat, associated fauna, and cultural features of this Creek.
