Fodor's Expert Review Big Morongo Canyon Preserve

Indio Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Once a Native American village and later a cattle ranch, this preserve is a serene oasis around a natural spring generated by snowmelt from the surrounding mountains. Big Morongo attracts all manner of birds and animals to riparian woodland filled with cottonwoods and willows. You may spot great horned owls and Vermilion Flycatchers, and are likely to see many songbirds here any time of the year.
