Wind Wolves Preserve
Nature, hiking, education
The Wind Wolves Preserve, the West Coast’s largest non-profit preserve, is a unique preserve of the flora and fauna in this region of the San Joaquin Valley. Located south of Highway 166, between Maricopa and Interstate 5, Wind Wolves is a 30-square-mile sea of grasslands flowing into a California Blue Oak and Valley Oak Savannah with Riparian Wetlands. The Savannah rises into forests of Pinion and Juniper that, in turn, becomes stands of Ponderosa Pine and Big Cone Spruce. The Preserve is open daily from 9 a.m. -5 p.m. for hiking and picnicking. Campground hours are from Friday after 2:30 P.M. through Sunday at 5 p.m. (by appointment only). There are seasonal wildflower and wildlife viewing tours by vehicles.
